Frosty Fest 2016

Brantford’s Seventh Annual Frosty Fest 
February 13 to 15, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On Family Day weekend every year, Harmony Square in downtown Brantford is the place to be because It’s time for one of the largest winter carnivals in Ontario; Frosty Fest! 

Once again, over 15,000 people are expected to visit Brantford’s Downtown Harmony Square over the three-day event from February 13 to 15, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Admission to the Seventh Annual Frosty Fest winter carnival, presented by Freedom House and the City of Brantford is free. Although each year always manages to top previous years, in 2016 Frosty Fest promises to be the best yet, with new and thrilling festivities for everyone!

Some of the highlights include professional ice-carvers, horse-drawn trolley rides, ball hockey, an artisans’ bazaar, figure skating shows, a street midway and inflatables, a snow slide and free skating. Kids will enjoy pony rides and free Kids Zone games!

Freedom House has distributed 20,000 free midway ride coupons and 40,000 free pancake coupons to Brantford and area elementary school students ahead of the event as a part of their "Kindness Project". Additionally, join the Princess Party on Sunday, February 14 at 11:00 a.m.

Winter treats include funnel cakes, poutine, snow taffy and this year an entire cafe destination filled with treats from Ferrero's Rocher and Nutella. Monday's pancake breakfast is available for a toonie. Bundle up and come downtown to Harmony Square to the Annual Frosty Fest Winter Carnival; a great way to celebrate families and community and a much anticipated way to honour our lovely winters no matter what the weather!
