Winterfest 2022 has made some adjustment in order to keep the Grand Haven community safe. All outdoor events will continue, however, indoor events such as Kid’s Day and Cardboard Sled Build have been removed from the schedule for this year, with hopes of returning in 2023! Please be careful for yourself and respectful of others and volunteers who work hard to bring you a safe and fun community event.
