Lake Chelan Winterfest 2019

12/17/2018 | by Sage Vacation Rentals | Vacation Rentals

Winterfest is almost upon us! It seems like every year this event grows more and more, which is fabulous. January 18th – 27th will be jam-packed with family-friendly fun; and as always, alcoholic beverage events that makes this weekend that much more exciting for adults!

So you may be wondering…what is Winterfest? Winterfest is a two-week festival in honor of winter held in Chelan and Manson, Washington bordering the gorgeous Lake Chelan. This event is a great reminder that there is so much fun to be had in the Lake Chelan Valley ALL YEAR LONG!

It’s important to keep in mind that because the festival is so popular, tickets usually sell out well in advance! As a matter of fact, as I’m typing this up, I found out that the first weekend’s all-access passes have been sold out, as well as the Bubble Bar Sparkling Wine Brunch. It’s crucial you act fast if you want to an all-access pass for the 2nd weekend! Here’s the link to purchase your tickets. The 2nd weekend package includes Brewer & Distillers Night Ticket, VIP Alefest Ticket, & Battle of the Bloody Mary Ticket!

Here’s everything you need to know to plan for Winterfest 2019:
