This year’s Warren County Winterfest is set for Friday, January 20 – Sunday, January 22 at Chapman State Park. This event is great for the whole family and it is known to be one of the largest winter events in Pennsylvania!
This fun event will start off with the Jim Lobdell Memorial Sled Dog Race on Friday morning at Chapman State Park! Come on down with your friends and family and enjoy this exciting event in snow! Looking for more snow activities? Ride your snowmobile through some of the best snowmobile trails in Western Pennsylvania. The Allegheny National Forest Snowmobile Loop goes right through Chapman Park, so spend the day on the trails and stop by Winterfest throughout the weekend for great family fun!
The fun continues Saturday morning with more Lobdell Memorial Sled Dog Races, skiing, ice fishing, and a geocaching seminar that starts at 9 AM!

Be sure to register before the event and all the proceeds help to benefit the Salvation Army’s Warren Citadel.
For all of you skaters out there, make sure you bring your ice skates and enjoy the all new ice rink! If you don’t have skates, it’s not a problem because there will be skates available for you to rent throughout the weekend!
