Lowell Winterfest

Lowell’s Winterfest is the region’s premier, annual winter celebration, drawing thousands out of hibernation to enjoy a variety of family activities and entertainment.  The festival takes place February 23 and 24, 2018.  Winterfest highlights include ice skating, inflatable slides, a carousel, Soup Bowl Contest, fire dancers, Craft Beer Showcase, children’s entertainment and rocking local bands!  Winterfest 2018 will feature the music of U2 cover band Joshua Tree; Hal and the Tones; Sonic Aviators and JD and the Misfits along with an 80s Soul & Reggae party with DJ Dave Perry.  And it wouldn’t be Winterfest without a full menu of food from local restaurants and food trucks.

Attending Lowell Winterfest is a great way to celebrate the cold weather and snow that is traditional in a New England winter.
