21st Annual Squam Lakes Winterfest 2018

​Celebrate Winter & Conservation!

Be a part of one of the most fun winter events around Squam Lake all while supporting a good cause! From skating, pond hockey, xcountry skiing, sledding, mini golf in Piper Cove, bonfire, winter sports demos, amazing raffle prizes and loads of fun—this event is not to be missed!

Come celebrate the best of what the season has to offer! Also returning, a crowd favorite our Annual Chili Contest. Here you're the judge! Sit by the fire in our great room as you sample and vote on the region's best chili! Also new this year is our Squam Ranger Trail Mix Cookie Competition from various recipes created by friends in our community! There will be an outside bonfire to warm up by, marshmallows to roast and hot cocoa for sipping.

Winterfest is a special event that supports the important mission-focused work of the Squam Lakes Association in conservation, education, watershed wellness and low-impact access to the most beautiful lake and trails in New Hampshire. Please join us in keeping our Squam Lakes protected and preserved, and celebrate winter with our Squam community! 

This event will take place at the SLA Resource Center, 534 Route 3, Holderness. It's free and open to the public. So grab the kids and swing on by. There's something for everyone! For more information call our office at (603)-968-7336.
