TRUMANSBURG, N.Y. — The Trumansburg Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the Trumansburg WinterFest for the 22nd year.

Join neighbors from near and far on Main Street in Trumansburg, Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 4-7pm. As usual we will shut the street down so you can meander through downtown and wander into our local businesses. Enjoy food and beverages, handmade goods, live music, and community merriment! Then get cozy by the fire at the library and enjoy a seasonal story and treats.

The 2017 Festival will once again feature a performance by Hilby and magician Mike Stanley. Back by popular demand is the Fall Creek Brass Band, who will be playing holiday tunes in addition to fan favorites. Of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive to light the Village tree, and Buddy the Elf with special guest Jovi will MC. Enjoy free horse-drawn carriage rides and games.

Stroll through Main Street and stop in the shops and restaurants for special savings, tastings, and more. WinterFest will also feature a holiday-themed sculpture created and installed by the Trumansburg High School AP Studio Art class.

This year we will be offering a 50/50 raffle. Tickets will be sold on November 18th and the 25th at the Trumansburg ShurSave, and will also be available November 18th through the festival at Good to Go Trumansburg Market, the Ulysses Philomathic Library, and Sundrees.

This mainstay event provides free live entertainment for kids, adults, and entire families, and is the perfect time to celebrate and reflect on what makes our community truly special.
