Winterloo is the city's annual cold weather festival. In 2021, the city’s annual festival includes winter-themed activities for residents to enjoy adapted to the current health regulations.

Winterloo is an annual, free festival for all ages that is open to the public and run by the City of Waterloo’s arts and culture team, Create Waterloo. Traditionally hosting winter-themed activities in uptown Waterloo, this year, the festival is adapted to accommodate for the safety procedures of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Break away from the winter blues with indoor and outdoor winter-themed activities. This year, Winterloo lets you choose your own adventure with things to see and do on your own schedule. Check out all the fun and exciting things around Waterloo, at home, and online as well as wintertime guides on the event website.

Residents are reminded to keep safety first and adhere to health guidelines on gathering and physical distancing. For activities outside the home, please wear a mask. Learn more about the City's Covid-19 protocols.
