Snow What! Let's Enjoy Winterfest No Matter The Weather

Updated: Feb 8

Listen, we wish there was more snow in Cazenovia right now too! But, despite the warmer weather you better believe we are going to make the most of Cazenovia's Winter Fest from February 8-11. The full list of events is available at www.cazenovia.com/winter but here are a few highlights we are really looking forward to.

Also - H.Grey will be hosting a Winter (Pride) Fest Market at their location from 12-4pm and we are sure that is something you won't want to miss!

And be sure to pop over to the Cazenovia Public Library for Ice Sculpture Demos by The Ice Farm at 3-4PM! See how it's all done! Remember the book sale is going on 10AM-4PM today as well, if you missed it yesterday. Also - the library is hosting a kids scavenger hunt, so bring your littles and help them figure out all the answers for big prizes!



Are you tired yet? The British Blacksmith will be crafting Hot Flip Drinks over at Madison County Distillery from 3PM-5PM. Not sure what a hot flip drink is? Check it out on Facebook and be sure to get yours on at this event! For more details, visit www.facebook.com/reel/1563554894465067 Also, get your outdoors fix by heading over early to enjoy a great mapped out hike on their vast network of abutting trails!



Once you've worked up a bit of an appetite, stop over to the Nelson Creamery for a feast! They are teaming up the the Cazenovia Mason's for Fire & Ice Weekend. That means stellar soft serve ice cream and the Cazenovia Masons famous chicken BBQ. Also make sure you get a pre-order in for Super Bowl Ice Cream Pies. You will be really glad you did!

Starting at 3PM there will be a DJ and pop-up barista bar at Community Bank! Come get your hot cocoa, jam out to some good tunes, and check out the shops downtown. Oh wait, and did you find that medallion yet? Also -- pop over to Pewter Spoon from 4-7PM for a video art mural on the side of the building presented by a local artist from The Stone Quarry Hill Art Park.


From 1-3PM, and then again from 7-9PM, Horse-Drawn wagon rides will be provided by Lamplit & Nutz in Training Farm sponsored by the New York State Draft Horse Club at Lorenzo State Historic Site. For more details, visit www.facebook.com/events/283099821452343/283099824785676


The party continues that night at Meier's Creek Brewing Co. with Light The Walk: An illuminated night hike running from 7PM-9PM starting from MCBC and continuing over to Lorenzo State Historic Site. A 20-30 minute walk along a beautiful illuminated path. Guests are encouraged to wear headlamps, glow in the dark attire, reflective wear -- and incase you aren't bright enough, we will be providing glow sticks for extra fun! Once you make it to your destination, enjoy the lights and a horse drawn wagon ride back to MCBC to enjoy cold beers, warm fires, and live music from Jess Novak Band.



Sunday, February 11th:


The Super Bowl will be kicking off tonight, but there is still daylight to burn! Get some fun under your belt in the morning to finish your weekend right!


Greet the day with Yoga in the Cellar at Meier's Creek Brewing Co. starting at 10:30AM. Tickets are $20 per person and you can pre-register by visiting https://momence.com/Erin-Vollmer/Yoga-%40-Meier's-Creek/99349909


Then we feast! Meier's Creek is hosting a Winter Fest Send Off Brunch from 11AM-4PM, or if you prefer something a little lighter, do yourself a favor and stop into Cazenovia Bagel Co. Local's love the Critz Farm breakfast sandwich or the Al-wich, but all in all, so many great options to go around.


Then starting at 11am is "Love Fest" at Skanda! But remember -- book your spot ahead of time. Spaces to cuddle with donkeys and goats are filling up quick!



Or if a hike is more your speed, check out Cazenovia Preservation Foundation “Snowshoe Sunday” at Meier's Creek Brewing Co. When the snow doesn't show, they just turn the day into a hike -- and that's just as good for a little bit of exercise out in nature! For more details, visit www.cazpreservation.org/events


And did you make sure to order your Super Bowl ice cream pie from the Nelson Creamery yet?




We hope you enjoy Winter Fest Weekend in Cazenovia! We think this town is one of the greatest small towns ever -- and we are so delighted to share all the fun with you!
