Winterfest at Lake Chelan

Known for its snow-capped surroundings and glacier-filled waters, Downtown Lake Chelan is the ultimate winter wonderland and the perfect place to gather with loved ones and celebrate the chilly season at the annual Winterfest from Jan. 14 to Jan. 23.

Set to return on Jan. 14 to Jan. 23, 2022, Winterfest is an exciting family-friendly winter festival that takes place annually at Washington’s Lake Chelan. The week-long celebration boasts a variety of ways to experience the season and celebrate it with the help of exciting activities and experiences. Winterfest takes place outside, so it is important to remember to bundle up and prepare for some open-air fun. 

The festival’s lineup includes a variety of different activities that will go on throughout the week including live ice-sculpture carvings, the polar bear plunge and bonfire, Lady at the Lake firework cruise parade, stunning firework displays at Manson Bay Park, a wine and mitten walk, and so much more fun for you and the whole family. 

Be sure to be on the hunt for Tsilly, Lake Chelan’s lake “monster” who will be hidden throughout Winterfest in various spots. Whoever finds the most Tsillys will receive a grand prize! Click here for a list of where he might be hiding.
