St. John's ChillFest: A Winter Celebration for All Ages

ChillFest logo for City of St. John's winter festival

St. John’s ChillFest is a community-wide celebration of winter, with a variety of activities and events to take place Feb. 12-14. The newly renamed winter festival includes a parade of lights, an all-ages kitchen party, free cross country ski and snowshoe rentals, events at The Loop and a number activities for young and young at heart.

We were thrilled at the response to the Name our Winter Festival contest with over 50 entries and almost 90 suggested names. Many thanks to James Lewis of Wreckhouse Creative for his ‘ChillFest’ submission. Congratulations to Kristyn Coley, who was selected by random draw for the $200 Outfitters Prize.

ChillFest has something for everyone and all activities offered are free of charge. The complete listing of all events can be viewed on the City’s website.
