Snow-capped peaks create a postcard-perfect background to a town so picturesque,you’ll pinch yourself to see if you’re dreaming.

No one celebrates winter like we do, and WinterFest, held November 6th through February 28th, is the perfect example! Kicking off the festivities with a super party on November 6th, the fun continues over the next three months with light parades, trolley tours, Christmas shows, and so many other activities and events you may find yourself wishing you could extend your vacation to last throughout the entire winter! But if you can’t stay the entire winter, be sure to plan your vacation to occur anytime between November 23rd and December 22nd; this is when Winter Magic Tune and Tales begins their annual strolling through the streets! Featuring carolers, characters, and storytellers that can spin yarns with the best of them, this fun event is our favorite part of Winter Fest!
