Winterfest 2009 in Surrey

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last year we attended and covered several key events in Surrey that involved thousands of participants, activities, events, and concerts. This year they’re bringing back Winterfest, the biggest hit of the snowy season, for a full day of outdoor and indoor activities along with some pretty rockin’ performances.

One thing that John and I both determined in 2008 was that this city sure knows how to put on an event and treat everyone like rock stars – while charging NO admission fees at all. There’s fun and games for the kids, and plenty of food and musical entertainment for the big kids. I’ve partnered with the City of Surrey yet again blog the event so we’ll have Winterfest coverage on the day, as well as photos, recaps and interviews.

    Lol only band I recognize is Thornley 🙂 It’s cool how Surrey does this and charges no fee to see it.

    Looks like Surrey is making up for Vancouver’s ‘no fun’ reputation. From Canada day and fusion festival to winterfest.
