Brantford's Annual Frosty Fest

Brantford's Annual Frosty Fest

A reputation as one of the largest winter carnivals in Ontario; Brantford’s own Frosty Fest is held on Family Day weekend every year in Harmony Square in downtown Brantford! This year’s event takes place Sunday, February 19 and Monday, February 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. making 2017 the eighth annual celebration. Admission to the Frosty Fest winter carnival, presented by Freedom House, is FREE and features the return of many wonderful favourite winter activities.

Brantford’s Downtown Harmony Square is the setting for Frosty Fest 2017 and in previous years has seen up to about 15,000 people in attendance. Residents and visitors from all over Ontario help to make this annual, family experience one not to be missed. 

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”. Join the Princess and Super Heroes Party with Captain Kindness on Sunday, February 19 at 11:00 a.m!

For just a toonie, you can enjoy Monday's pancake breakfast. Other winter treats include funnel cakes, poutine, snow taffy and this year an entire café destination filled with treats from Nutella.

Some of the highlights include professional ice-carvers, horse-drawn trolley rides, ball hockey, the 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!

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!
