Nutrien Wintershines Festival

Now – Saturday

Various Venues

Wintershines has hit pause on its celebrations until the weather warms up. Organizers made the touch decision to close the outdoor activities as the city was plunged back into the deep freeze. The organizing team says they are planning to extend the festival until Sunday when a warm up is expected. You can still take in the TeleMiracle preview performance Friday night as that event has been moved indoors at the Remai Modern. When the park opens back up in Friendship Park, there are many of the free activities to take in.
