Since 1976, community groups across the city have brought Winterfest to life through dozens of events that pop-up in neighbourhood parks, recreation centres and community hubs. They can be anything from a social event sharing hot chocolate in the park, to outdoor light spectacles created by artists and citizen collectives looking to bring a sense of sparkle to the darkness of February nights.
