Tinsel Town

Welcome to Tinsel Town, a new themed area at WinterFest! Take a step back in time as the mayor and his jolly wife invite you to experience the magical hustle and bustle of holiday merriment – straight from the 1950s. Grandma’s stories of Christmases past will come alive in this picture-perfect community town square, complete with a retro diner, old-time department store and soothing tunes of the melodious Mistletones.

Jack Frost's Igloo Village

Furnished with comfort and warmth, Jack Frost's Igloos are the perfect spot to take a break and soak in the beauty of WinterFest! Reseve your own igloo and enjoy food and beverage delivery, souvenir mugs, reserved show seating and so much more! But the fun doesn't stop there, Jack Frost has plenty of surpirses up his sleeves for his honored guests.
