2023 Winterfest

Location: Squam Lakes Association, 534 US Route 3, Holderness, NH

Date: Saturday, February 18th 

The Squam Lakes Association is excited to announce the return of Winterfest with its traditional in-person attendance! Join us on Saturday, February 18th, from 12-3 PM for one of Squam's most exciting winter events. This event is free to the public and will include activities for folks of all ages. Whether you are ice skating, casting your vote in the chili cook-off, playing frozen mini golf, or simply sipping hot chocolate by the fire, this event is fun for the whole family. Other activities will include water quality demonstrations, ice fishing demos by Fly Hooked Guide Service, and live animal programs put on by the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. Come join the SLA for camaraderie and celebration of the glorious season of winter!

To reduce waste, participants are encouraged to bring their own mug and spoon for tasting chili. Reusable mugs will also be available for purchase.

Activities such as the ice rink are subject to mother nature and current ice conditions.

Current Ice Rink Status: CLOSED
