Rogue Winterfest Festival

Five Spectacular Days … Four Magical Events

The 13th Annual Rogue Winterfest will be held at Evergreen Federal Bank’s Bear Hotel December 3 through December 7.

“It is because Josephine County is such a giving community that we can continue producing Rogue Winterfest,” says Event Planner Sue Price. “Without our generous sponsors, volunteers, artists, and entertainers, we would not be able to hold Rogue Winterfest. Proceeds from the Festival will help hundreds of children, families, and adults with mental health needs in our community. On behalf of Josephine County mental health agencies Family SolutionsKairos, and Options for Southern OregonTHANK YOU!”

Since the beginning of the year, 125 passionate volunteers, creative designers, musicians, culinary establishments, and exceptional artists have been working diligently to create a spectacular one-of-a kind festival. More than 30 holiday trees and heirloom art pieces will be on display this year.

Top entertainment, superb culinary artisans, and award-winning wineries will offer tantalizing samples of their artistry throughout the events.

Tickets are required. You can purchase tickets at Evergreen Federal Bank or online for the Gala & Grand Auction, Culinary Christmas Classic, and Golden Social. Tickets are only sold at the door for the Weekend Holiday Events.

King Jewelers LogoKing Jewelers Gives Back

We at King Jewelers feel blessed to live in an area where addressing mental health issues is considered a priority. These three wonderful organizations—Family Solutions, Kairos, and Options—have consistently and effectively helped our children, youth, and families. They stand in the gap, enduring the messy nature of brokenness. It is our pleasure to applaud them and support their work.

King Jewelers has enjoyed 36 years of local community involvement. Our hometown roots grow deep here. We first opened our doors with 17 jewelry pieces, each designed and crafted by Chuck. From there, we have slowly and carefully come of age. Now we have our next generation of designing jewelers—our son and son-in-law—ready to move us forward with the same heart for our local community. Our holiday wish to all is for a Christmas full of gratitude and blessings and for a wonderful New Year.

—Chuck, Corinne, Nick, Dennis, & Cassandra, The King Jewelers Team
