WinterFest serves to promote wintertime activities for all ages while raising awareness and funds for events sponsored by area nonprofit organizations.

Rochester WinterFest takes place annually from mid-January to mid-February. There is a wide variety of activities happening in the Rochester area so all can enjoy the Cabin Fever Days of Winter in Rochester, MN!  There is something for everyone, young or old, indoors or out.

Annually, WinterFest brings together more than 6,500 attendees at 30+ unique events presented by over 20 local organizations! 500+ volunteers, working over 2,000 hours, raise over $350,000 yearly for nonprofits in our community during WinterFest.


Great job to all of the organizations and volunteers that continue to make WinterFest a SUCCESS year after year!

Rochester WinterFest XVI will take place January 18 – February 18, 2018. Please mark your calendars to attend ANY or ALL events. See you there!
