Before the snow melts away again, take in all the winter sights that Lake Geneva has to offer. With local festivities like Winterfest and the brand-new Ice Castles, there is still time to enjoy winter at its best.
Just 10 minutes away from Delavan Lake Resort, Winterfest is the 9-day celebration that everyone is talking about. This spectacular, family-friendly event takes place this year from Saturday, January 26th to Sunday, February 3rd. Winterfest is jam-packed with fun events and local vendor booths from surrounding areas, making it perfect to explore downtown Lake Geneva in the winter! Winterfest truly does offer something for everyone; from human dog sled races to live music, magic shows to helicopter rides, you don’t want to miss this!
Center stage for all the festivities along the waterway is the 2019 United States National Snow Sculpting Championship (January 30th to February 2nd). 15 teams from multiple states across America show off their skill in designing and creating massive sculptures of snow and ice. This is a multi-day contest allowing plenty of time for the participants to construct mind-blowing works of art for all to see.
After spending your day at the winter festival, spend your evening at the Lake Geneva Ice Castles! These massive towers of ice have been constructed and built up over the past couple of weeks. When the sun goes down, the lights come on in a variety of color meant to dazzle. Glistening off the ice, the lights make the caves and towers appear larger than life. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy with the family, and every year people rave over the great photos they get from the castles… book your tickets now!
After you have spent the whole day surrounded by snow and ice, come on back to the comfort of your suite here at Delavan Lake Resort. With warm fireplaces waiting for you, it is the ideal way to end a chilly winter day: looking out across the ice-and-snow-covered lake and knowing there is still more to enjoy during your stay with us.
