PLEASE NOTE: Due to the impending winter storm, the 2016 Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival Parade will be cancelled on Saturday, January 23rd. The timing of the snow and winds for late Friday and Saturday will not provide a safe environment for the parade as well as spectators. This year we have been approved for a “snow date” for the following Saturday, January 30th. As of now we plan to continue that schedule. We will confirm with all of our participants of the parade to their availability. If there is any chance of having to cancel the parade next week due to weather or participation, all parties involved will be notified by noon on Thursday, January 28th.
Yes, the holiday season may be over, but in the Bucks County river towns of New Hope & Lambertville, the party is just getting started! The 2016 Winter Festival is set to return with dozens of special events happening in New Hope & Lambertville between Saturday, January 23, 2016 and Sunday, Janaury 31, 2016.
Locals and visitors alike can participate in returning favorites like the Fire and Ice Ball, free cultural walking tours, and the Chili Cook-Off as well as special events including a new Revolutionary War inspired pub crawl. There is truly something for everyone throughout this popular annual festival.
Simply walk throughout town during Winterfest to enjoy scattered frozen masterpieces from world-renowned ice sculpturists. Other event highlights include the annual Winterfest parade and the 2016 Gallery Crawl from 11am to 6pm on January 30th and 31st.
The Winter Festival Gallery Crawl is a self-guided art tour that enables participants to enjoy refreshments and art at their own pace, starting and ending wherever they wish.
