Winterfest 2018 is Coming!

winterfestThe annual celebration of winter, art, family and fun in the form of Winterfest and the US National Snow Sculpting Competition is coming to Lake Geneva and ya’ll need to be there! First and foremost reason is because I’ll be there! Hahaha!! So kidding on that as a reason… I mean, I’ll be there, of course, but there are a bazillion more, and much better, reasons to attend!

To be very clear for when you’re making plans to come, the US National Snow Sculpting Competition begins on Wednesday, Jan. 31, with sculpting happening daily from 9 am to 7 pm, and then 9 am to noon on Saturday, Feb. 3. The People’s Choice Award Voting is Saturday, Feb. 3, 11 am – 2 pm, with voting areas in the Riviera Ballroom and at the Visitor Center in Flat Iron Park. The Awards Ceremony is then at 3 pm in the Riviera Ballroom.
