Weekend Holiday Events

Rogue Winterfest Weekend Holiday Events

Saturday, December 2, and Sunday, December 3, 2017

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Open to the public

This is a holiday event for the whole family. The public is invited to view creatively decorated trees and locally produced art along with Evergreen Federal Bank’s Southern Oregon Adventure displays complete with towering redwoods, deep forests and rivers, Crater Lake, Southern Oregon coast, and vineyards all designed by local artists. Truly AMAZING! Visit Santa and Mrs. Claus; engage in family activities and games in Santa’s Workshop; enjoy live entertainment; and vote on the People’s Choice Award.

Activities include Fishing at the North Pole, Coloring and Letters to Santa, holiday building project with The Home Depot, face painting by Leslie Heidner Body Art, and taking that perfect photo in the spectacular Southern Oregon Adventure setting.

Every 45 minutes, the entertainment on the big stage will change, ranging from bands to choirs to individual singers to classical performers during this live musical mash-up.

Santa will be available for pictures, so bring your camera.

Evergreen Federal Bank will feature its spectacularly unique Southern Oregon Adventure displays. We are honored to hold our Festival at this one-of-a-kind venue. Thank you, Evergreen Federal Bank!

A special thank-you to Southern Oregon Audio and Visual for providing lighting and audio for all of the Festival events and to Gene and Nancy Kettwig for sponsoring Santa’s Workshop!
