The Lake Chelan Winterfest Festival has been a community favorite for nearly 30 years. It started back in the 80’s and was put on by the Lake Chelan Recreation Association. Over the years, it has grown in size but has been able to retain its small town charm. The Winterfest Festival is a barrel of fun for everyone; a true event for the whole family.

This Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce event spans two weekends from January 12 through January 21, filled with incredible ice sculptures, live music, wine tasting, ale tasting, activities for kids of all ages, a polar bear splash, massive beach bonfire, spectacular fireworks show and much more!

Show your support for the event by purchasing your Winterfest Button!

Unfortunately, for 2018, we are unable to continue the wish lanterns in Manson due to newly adopted national fire regulations in our area. In order to keep all our visitors and staff safe, we are abiding by the newly adopted fire safety rules and moving forward with planning another fantastic Winterfest.
