Winterfest 2023 Is Double the Fun!
Tree Lighting & Performances Dec. 3rd on Plaza
a Day-Long Holiday Bonanza Dec. 17th at the Community Center & a Pair of Holiday Movies on Dec. 3rd & 14th!

Winterfest, the 94941’s annual holiday celebration, is leveling up in 2023!

In addition to our Annual Tree Lighting ceremony on the Depot Plaza on Dec. 3rd, featuring our incoming Mayor Urban Carmel, along with a couple of live performances, we’re also hosting our traditional Winterfest event on Sunday, Dec. 17th – live music, dancers, Giant Rainbow Slide, food trucks, bouncy houses, a ton of children’s activities, a visit from Santa Claus and much more.

In a new wrinkle, we’ll be serving up adult beverages for parents, plenty of opportunities to meet our amazing sponsors and performances throughout the day.

Prior to the big day, we’ll again be hosting the popular Winterfest Holiday Hunt, a three-week, scavenger hunt-style contest at more than 30 businesses throughout Mill Valley. The contest centers around Iridescent Stars provided by the Mill Valley Chamber. Businesses owners place a star in storefront windows or inside their businesses, and kids accompanied by a parent take photos of the stars, as selfies in front of the stars they choose at some amazing local restaurants, retail shops, salons and more. The Holiday Hunt will run through Dec. 17. Holiday Hunters who email at least eight of their photos as attachments to will be entered into a raffle for one of 10 $20 gift cards to participating businesses (one gift card per raffle winner), with the contenstant who takes and submits the most star photos winning a $40 gift card.

We’ll post a series of clues about participating businesses for Holiday Hunters on the EMV Blog in November. More updates to come, and see you in December!

Oh, and last but certainly not least, we’ll be screening two kid-friendly holiday films in the Cascade Room of the Mill Valley Community Center on Dec. 3rd and Dec. 14th!
