About Rogue Winterfest
Rogue Winterfest is a magical five-day festival held in Grants Pass from December 3 to December 7, 2015. The Festival offers four distinct events: Gala & Grand Auction, Golden Social, Weekend Holiday Events, and Culinary Christmas Classic & Silent Auction. See roguewinterfest.org for details.
Each year, this incredible festival grows larger—both in sponsorships and attendance. The 13th annual Rogue Winterfest will showcase 25 theme-decorated trees, incredible Southern Oregon art, tantalizing auction items—including a Wine Vacation—and thrilling entertainment at four spectacular events, blending artistry, culinary delights, entertainment, stunning designer creations, and holiday spirit … all under one roof.
Evergreen’s Bear Hotel Transformation
Inside the Bear Hotel an adventure awaits, beginning with a vista overlooking Crater Lake. Pathways lead visitors through majestic redwoods and canyons with waterfalls and wildlife critters created by local artists. A covered bridge opens yet another door to vineyards with rolling hills that make their way to the Oregon coast. And to top it all off … this winter, everything will be dusted with a layer of sparkling snow.
Changing lives … one tree, one donation, one volunteer at a time.
Family Solutions, Kairos, and Options for Southern Oregon work hard to meet the mental and behavioral challenges of people within our community. Through the support of the community, these nonprofit agencies are able to carry out their important work. The contributions raised by Rogue Winterfest are used to help fund these three vital nonprofit mental health organizations.
Fundraising events such as Rogue Winterfest provide crucial support and services to our community.
Spotlight: Golden Social
For the third year running, we are offering the Golden Social. Just for our friends over 55, this exclusive event takes place on Friday, December 4, 2015, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. We are honored to have Highland House and Royale Gardens as our generous sponsors of the Golden Social. Highland House and Royale Gardens are operated by Pinnacle Healthcare Inc., which has been a leader in post-acute nursing care and rehabilitation since 1948.
“Our patients are our number one priority. We view each of our facilities as a family with individual needs and local sensitivities.”
At the Golden Social, our guests will enjoy light appetizers, desserts, beverages, and live entertainment by the Good Time Singers and Bob Armstrong. You will be greeted by strolling minstrels Lumina as they spread holiday cheer throughout the event. This afternoon is our way of saying thank-you and presenting our senior community with a personalized experience of Rogue Winterfest. It’s a private party for those who love this festive season. Enjoy a holiday golden social, invite your friends, and join us for the festivities!
There are plenty of volunteer opportunities at Rogue Winterfest. The Festival runs on people power, and every pair of hands makes a difference. We warmly invite you to become a part of the festival family by joining us as a volunteer. Whether you are greeting people, soliciting auction items, registering guests, setting the stage, cleaning up, or decorating, every person involved is an important part of the celebration. If you would like to go behind-the-scenes at this one-of-a-kind winter festival, please see our Volunteer page for more details.
