WinterFest offers festive activities for all ages and interests from carriage rides and Santa’s cottage to a family concert, tree-lighting, holiday market, guided hikes, the bears of Art In The Park and peeks inside Chautauqua’s historic cottages. WinterFest makes a perfect day out for couples, friends and families and a chance to get a jump on holiday shopping with unique creations from Colorado artisans and Chautauqua merchandise at the WinterFest Market and Chautauqua General Store.
