Think it’s too cold in January to have a festival? The good folks in Blowing Rock beg to differ. The Blowing Rock Chamber is proud to present the 19th edition of Winterfest from Jan. 26-29 in locations throughout the town.
This popular event features ice sculptures, jazz concerts, a fashion show, snowflake parade, polar plunge, and delectable food and wine offerings. New for 2017 is a Friday evening Ice Stroll to view lighted ice sculptures in front of businesses after dark.
Winterfest has been named a AAA “Top Pick” and a “Top 20 Event” by the Southeastern Tourism Society.
