The Hawley Winterfest Committee is in the planning stages for one of the area's biggest pre-holiday festivals. This year's 15th Annual Hawley Winterfest "A Weekend in a Winter Wonderland" begins on Friday December 6th and runs through Sunday, December 8th. The committee is comprised of downtown merchants, area business owners and local residents dedicated in bringing a charming, old-fashioned and festive atmosphere to Hawley.
This year's event promises to be bigger and better than ever with some new additions as well as time-honored favorites from years past. It's a one stop winter wonderland experience with fun for the entire family. A cheerful time is had by all throughout historic Hawley, a quaint town nestled in the beautiful Pocono Mountains Lake Region of Wayne and Pike counties. Local residents and visitors celebrate winter with music entertainment, art shows, theater, delicious food and drink, holiday house tours, carriage rides, shopping, a beer tour, cookie decorating, Christmas wreath sales, exhibits, contests, demonstrations, giveaways and much more.
Hawley Winterfest is presented by The Downtown Hawley Partnership. Numerous volunteers and donations help make the festival possible each year. To submit an event or sponsorship form, visit www.hawleywinterfest.com or call (570) 226-4064.
The deadline for sponsorship and event submission is Wednesday, September 11th. All businesses, non-profits or individuals interested in sponsoring the festival should have the forms completed by September 11th. All levels of sponsorship are welcome and appreciated. The success of previous Winterfest celebrations was largely due to the generosity of sponsors. Proceeds from the event were used to purchase new holiday decorations for Hawley's business district and continue with revitalization projects.
