Our Mission

Our goal is to provide a venue for people to come out and enjoy winter with others from across the community and beyond. Visitors will experience what Waterbury has to offer. Event proceeds expand recreational opportunities in town and support economic growth in our community.

How We Use Profits

Funds raised during Waterbury Winterfest are used to provide scholarships, grants, and support for projects that enhance recreational opportunities in Waterbury.


Our sponsors provide the resources that make Waterbury Winterfest possible. We are proud that our festival brings locals and visitors together during the winter months and that it continues to support recreation all year long.


We encourage locals and visitors to patronize Waterbury’s pubs and eateries, and our shops, too. Check out discoverwaterbury.com for ideas, and for places to stay if you’re visiting. Whether you’re in the mood to learn, to listen to music, to socialize, exercise, eat and drink, or play, we’ve got you covered. We look forward to seeing you.
