This years Winterfest will include many of the classics that have made this festival popular. These include an opening ceremony from the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians, the polar bear dip, kids activities, Gun Lake Idol, a beer tasting tent, a vendor tent and much, much more! Come check out the beautiful sights this area has to offer and join in the fun! Our featured charity for this year is Sylvia's Place in Allegan County. They provide secure shelter and supportive services free of charge to survivors of abuse and their dependent children. We are also holding a donation drive for Paws with a Cause. Check out the Polar Bear Dip event page for a list of what is needed. Visit our website for a full list of events both onsite and off at gunlakewinterfest.com. Remember to dress for the season!
