North Adams has a great way to shake away those winter blues.

Head downtown for WinterFest on February 17th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for sledding, snow building, hot chocolate, the annual Chowder Cook-off, ice sculpting, horse-drawn wagon rides, a community campfire, and the 3nd Annual WinterFest Farm & Artisan Marketplace!

This family-friendly, day-long, event is sure to brighten up even the coldest winter day.

Festivities will wrap up at the North Adams Skating Rink, with FREE skate rentals and rink access from 2-4 PM.

Due to expected warmer weather and rain over the next week Sunday’s activities at Windsor Lake have been canceled for this year’s event.

All events are free.
