It’s that time of year again. Battle Creek’s WinterFest is here to help you celebrate the holiday season! Come join us from November 23-January 2 for dazzling lights and winter family fun.

The International Festival of Lights has our downtown radiating with holiday spirit. This tradition continues to attract visitors from near and far every year. To see the twinkling lights, you can take a stroll down State Street or stop by the W.K Kellogg Foundation’s backyard.

The colorful light displays aren’t the only attraction. From horse-drawn wagon rides to free ice skating, there’s something for everyone in your family to enjoy. Take a trip downtown to enjoy the festivities. We can’t wait to see you!
