About Winterloo

Horse Drawn Carriage Rides @ Winterloo 2016

"When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels." Anonymous

In Waterloo, when it snows, we have Winterloo!

Our program is packed with events across four themes:

  • Winter sport
  • Winter survival
  • Winter cultures
  • Stay warm by the fire

Activities range from archery to snow-shoeing, from a scavenger hunt to an Amazing Race: The Winter Edition, from dog sled rides to ice sculptures, and from puppet shows to story telling.

The ingenious University of Waterloo's Engineering program are responsible for making the hugely popular ice slide a reality this year, while the Integrated Marketing Communications program at Conestoga college have created an amazing winter race for you!

Whether you need something warm to fortify you from the cold, or sustenance before the next activity, we've made sure there are food vendors around the park.

Activities will centre in and around Waterloo Park West. This Winterloo 2017 venue is designed to make the festival more user-friendly!

Uptown Waterloo will still host some of our ever popular activities, like the chili cook-off at Chainsaw's, and the movie screening at Princess Cinemas.

Don't forget your skates, and come join us for Skate Night Date Night on Friday, Feb. 24 at Waterloo Public Square!
