December 1 - 31, 2023

Imagine old-fashioned winter celebrations. Warming frosty fingers around a steaming mug of cocoa, the laughter of children, the aroma of a crackling fire. The magic of holiday events and the spirit of everyone’s favorite season. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy during our month-long event - a makers market, visits from Santa and his reindeer, holiday craft programming, luminary walks and more!

Note: The Mulberry Fields Ice Rink will not return for the 2023 Winterfest Season

Noon Year's Eve (WAIT LIST)

Sunday, December 31

New Year's Eve is a great time to celebrate all we've done and all we will do in the coming year. However, midnight can come too late for young ones, and let's face it, sometimes the adults. Join us as we celebrate the New Year a little early with activities for all ages and a countdown to NOON!
