Winterloo is an annual event that spans Waterloo’s amazing uptown. For 13 years, Winterloo has delighted families with great outdoor and indoor events. With a program packed with winter-themed events ranging from dog sled rides to world-class ice sculpting and art activities with Button Factory Arts, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

This year, Winterloo is dressing up in a new jacket. While still providing families and children with a wide range of activities, Winterloo 2016 will include events designed to welcome young adults, and especially our many students who have made Waterloo their temporary home.

We also have a new chairperson. Janice Moore is a long-time Waterloo resident, and an active community organizer. She has volunteered in many capacities, including chairperson of the recreation advisory committee, manager and coach for Waterloo Minor Baseball, president of the Kitchener Waterloo Diving Club and Dive Ontario. She served as the SOC chair in diving for PanAm 2015. She’s also been involved with Winterloo for the past five years, assisting with volunteer recruitment.
