We regret to announce that Winterfest 2022 will not move forward in February. We know this is disappointing news and the decision was not made lightly. There are many factors that went into it including the BSA bankruptcy, the effect COVID-19 has taken on our councils and the program, and the loss of units that otherwise may have attended Winterfest.
We hope to be back in 2023 and encourage you to watch for announcements on our Facebook page.
