Plan Ahead, you don't want to miss Chelan Winterfest 2022!
It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! It's also the busiest time of the year, so don't forget to book your trip, get your tickets, and plan ahead for Chelan Winterfest 2022!!!
After the holidays, the joy and fun is still very much alive in small town Chelan! This beautiful ❄WINTER WONDERLAND❄ is getting ready for our biggest festival of the year, Winterfest! Whether you've NEVER been to Chelan Winterfest, or you come EVERY YEAR, there is always something new, fun and entertaining for everyone!
Lake Chelan is located in north central Washington. It is the perfect place to celebrate winter. A glacier fed lake, snow capped hills and the cutest small town makes for the perfect location to come stay and play. This magnificent festival runs over two weekends every January featuring live music, incredible ice sculptures, wine tastings, beer and cider tasting, horse drawn carriage rides, bonfires, kids games and activities, shopping, an annual polar bear splash, and two spectacular firework displays. Great for couples, friends and families! There is fun to be had by all!
WEEKEND ONE: January 14th-16th in Historic downtown Chelan! Take a walk down historic main street while enjoying wine tasting. Enjoy sipping wines (from 40 plus award winning Chelan Valley Wineries), shopping and listening to live music. Don't worry, kids can sip too! Grab the kiddos their favorite drink at the Cocoa Crawl through downtown.
What's winter without ice? Watch scupltors carve beautiful, intricate ice sculptures located all around downtown Chelan. Adults can grab a drink from the ice bar and kids can enjoy a fun slippery ride down the ice slide! If you're feeling really spicy (or icy) don't miss the polar bear plunge on Saturday morning! Buurrrrrr!! Warm up by the giant bon fire on the beach and stay for the most beautiful firework display Saturday night!
WEEKEND TWO: January 21st-23rd in downtown Manson! If beer or cider is more your drink of choice, check out downtown Manson’s Alefest during the second weekend of Winterfest. More than 20 craft beers and ciders from local breweries to appreciate. Enjoy tastings, live music, shopping, kids activities, the annual Manson polar bear plunge, beach bonfire and a second spectacular fireworks display at Manson Bay Park! There is certainly no shortage of good food, good drinks, good times and fun!!!
