Winter Fest


Discover Doylestown to Host Month-long “Winter Fest”

 

Doylestown, PA: Discover Doylestown is excited to announce our town-wide "Winterfest" which will kickoff on Sunday January 8th! Art students from Central Bucks High School East, Central Bucks High School South, and Central Bucks High School West will bundle up to brighten our town, by painting their own creations on participating storefronts throughout downtown Doylestown starting at 10am!

 

Included with this amazing artwork will be a fun Scavenger Hunt, organized as a tribute to #prayfordominic. Help us pay tribute to Dominic buy searching for some of his favorite things hidden in the painted windows around town! You'll find some of Dominic's favorite things, like minions, gummy bears, sharks, the Eagles, and more! Kids of all ages are invited to pick up their scavenger hunt cards at Monkeys Uncle, ArtMuse, or the Discover Doylestown office to find out what icons to look for and where!

On Sunday January 15th from 10:30am - 12 noon, the County Theater will host a Meet & Greet Art show, where all the student art designs will be displayed on the big screen. Refreshments will be available, and this event is free and open to the public.

Then at 12 noon, stop by Doylestown's first Life-size Selfie Snow Globe! Step into the ultimate winter wonderland, and have your photo taken INSIDE the giant snow globe that will be station in the Starbuck's parking lot at State & Main. This is a once in a lifetime experience you won't want to miss!

Also on 1/15 from 1-4pm, Doylestown will host horse and carriage rides around the downtown area, to take a fun winter festive ride to see many of the painted windows. The pick up/drop off point will be in front of The County Theater, and rides will last approximately 15 minutes. All rides are free, but tips will be appreciated, with all collected to be donated to CB Cares Educational Foundation.

On Sunday 2/9 Winter Fest will conclude with the Scavenger Hunt Wrap up party at ArtMuse will from 12-2pm. The party will include snacks, prizes, and Minion meet and greet for all those who took on the adventure of the tribute to Dominic scavenger hunt!
