Putting together this event is such a delight. Meeting new people, giving back to the community, pulling together to support local commerce, and creating memories for our youth.  That doesn't

mean it isn't a lot of work. The old saying, "many hands make light work" was tested and proven.
Many thanks to all involved.  


There is no way WinterFest would happen without the generosity of individuals and businesses that contributed: Time, Sweat, Dollars, and Real Estate ( extra thank-you Goldberg's). 

With Humble Appreciation to Those Who Gave a Hand

Super Supporters

Grays Harbor is also known for its rapid response to help their people in need. That is established through record-breaking, fundraising (Relay for Life), physical efforts of the superhuman type (recent flood episode), and community support for individuals fighting medical challenges are not an uncommon occurrence.


The population in Grays Harbor / Aberdeen is stepping up again to provide an event to support local entrepreneurs and business owners. In addition to that, it is a family event that is open to all. No big ticket cost, no fancy clothes needed, WinterFest is a community builder and celebration.
