Feb. 2012 The Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce, Pepsi and Arizona Snowbowl present the 26th Annual Winterfest Flagstaff, celebrating the magical winter season in our mountain town.
Winterfest is part of the Chamber’s work to create a strong local economy. The celebration runs throughout February and its aim is to promote Flagstaff and attract tourists by raising awareness of the many things to do here in winter, from snowplay to cultural activities and special events.
“Raising awareness of the delights of winter in Flagstaff is a great way to promote our community and bring new customers to local businesses,” said Chamber President/CEO Julie Pastrick.
Winterfest coincides this year with the celebration of Arizona’s centennial and there will be a special concert to mark the event on February 4, the Northern Arizona Centennial Fandango. This year will also be the debut of the Dew Downtown Flagstaff Urban Ski and Snowboard Festival, on the second weekend of the month. This two-day extravaganza will turn San Francisco from Dale to Birch into a snowboarders heaven, with various urban props for grinding, jumping and shredding.
Other events include the traditional Robert Burns Supper, to celebrate the noted Scottish poet, the 2012 Library Quilt Show, as well as concerts and theatrical events. There is even a special Winterfest Brew, which will be tapped Friday, February 3 at Lumberyard Brewing Co.
Please check under each week for all the details on the great Winterfest activities.
