WinterFest

WinterFest Will Return in 2021

WinterFest, the Bay Area’s most immersive holiday event, brings holiday cheer to California’s Great America. During WinterFest, Great America is magically transformed into a winter wonderland and holiday festival where guests can skate in front of the iconic Carousel Columbia. Holiday attractions include magnificent displays of lights and décor, viewing spectacular live holiday shows, experiencing more than 60 rides and holiday attractions, seeing Santa’s workshop and Mrs. Claus’ kitchen, and enjoying scrumptious holiday fare at numerous dining locations.

The winter scene and Christmas celebration is dominated by one of the Bay Area’s tallest Christmas trees adorned with thousands of twinkling lights accompanied by giant toy soldiers greeting guests. This amazing event features millions of lights, creating a Christmas event for the entire family.
