WinterFest 2023 in Biddeford, ME! Join Biddeford's community in their historic downtown for the 2023 Winter Fest, on February 3 - 5th (POSTPONED FEBRUARY 10-12, 2022)! A cabin-fever busting weekend of snow and fun filled events for the whole family!
This will be a “snow or shine” event. That means, we will still have loads of family friendly activities and entertainment on Saturday, February 4 even if we don’t get snow. If it looks like it will be rainy and rugged out, watch here and on social media for updates
In 2022, youth in our community were invited to dream up a mascot that inspires and connects us to the pride and spirit of Biddeford Winterfest. Come to WinterFest and meet the new Mascot Francois!! Be sure to get your photo taken with him and tag us on social media!
6-7:30 p.m. First Night Sledding Party (shhhhh– not for the kids!) This event is extremely popular and we're bringing it back for 2023!! Kick off WinterFest weekend with an adults-only sledding party on the Adams Street sledding hill at City Hall. Indulge your inner child (we'll provide the sleds!) from 6 - 7:30 p.m. For sledders 21+, stay tuned for updates regarding drink specials downtown!!!
This event is co-sponsored by Blaze Brewing - if for any reason there's not enough snow for sledding, there will still be a fun party at Blaze (your ticket will entitle you to a beverage free at Blaze).
Do a friend count and purchase your tickets today (limited number available!). Don't forget about the Poker Crawl happening this weekend - it would be a great night to start the poker crawl at participating restaurants, breweries, distilleries and bars as well.
8:00 p.m. @ City Theater Imagine: The Beatles Solo Years with Joe Boucher: In 1969, The Beatles walked across Abbey Road and away from the studio where they created the most important body of work that any rock band has before or since. In the years that followed, John, Paul, George and Ringo each continued to write and record countless iconic songs keeping them front and center in the eyes and ears of the world. IMAGINE, brings together the solo hits of the individual Beatles as they might have sounded had they continued together and if their legendary producer George Martin would have crafted these songs along with them.
Show starts at 8:00 p.m., so it's a perfect way to warm up after First Night Sledding. Purchase tickets online or by visiting City Theater.
