About Ipreo Raleigh Winterfest


Join us for the 2016 Winterfest Festival on Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 12 noon to 8 pm!

The Ipreo Raleigh Winterfest, produced by the Downtown Raleigh Alliance (DRA) in partnership with the City of Raleigh, draws thousands of people to the downtown area. As a kickoff to the winter season with rides, a visit from Santa, a Gingerbread House competition and of course the Mayor's Official Tree Lighting ceremony, the event creates memorable experiences for downtown Raleigh visitors.

Grab your mittens, lace up your kicks, and make your way to the heart of the center city for Raleigh's premier holiday event, Ipreo Raleigh Winterfest.  As an added bonus, Ice Raleigh, the area's only natural ice outdoor skating rink, will be open during the Winterfest festival and through January 29, 2017.



The even takes place on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. When using a GPS, please use 400 Fayetteville St.
