Winter Activities

It's a different Lake Geneva experience when the snow falls

When the lake freezes over and the snow covers the ground, there's a magical new side of Lake Geneva to be explored.

Bundle up and get out into the Wisconsin Winter Wonderland!

Lake Geneva Winterfest

Celebrate the Fun of Winter

For more than 25 years, Lake Geneva has celebrated all things winter during their annual Winterfest celebration. Located in Downtown Lake Geneva, this event also hosts the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Championship where teams from across the country create immense works of art that will put your typical front yard snowman to shame. Along with viewing the snow sculptures, take part in other activities such as beach bonfires, ice bars, and more. You can find more information on their website. Complimentary scheduled shuttle service available to and from the event.
