Things about WinterFest

Mission Statement

WinterFest serves to promote wintertime activities for all ages while raising awareness and funds for events sponsored by area nonprofit organizations.

Rochester WinterFest takes place annually during the first two weeks in February. There is a wide variety of activities happening in the Rochester area so all can enjoy the Cabin Fever Days of February! There is something for everyone, young or old, indoors or out.

WinterFest 2014 was a grand success! It brought together more than 6,800 attendees at 32 unique events presented by over 20 local organizations, utilized the work of more than 550 volunteers working over 2,000 hours, and raised over $350,000 for nonprofits in our community.

Great job to all of the organizations and volunteers that continue to make WinterFest a SUCCESS year after year!

Rochester WinterFest XIV will take place January 28 – February 14, 2016. Please mark your calendars to attend ANY or ALL events. See you there!
