A complete list of Winterfest events is available at https://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/winterfest/, along with a map of event locations. There are lots of fun happenings all around town – but be sure to check out the events taking place at the library:
- Saturday, Feb 7th: the Children’s Department will be hosting performers Davis Bates and Roger Tincknell with songs and stories for WinterFest, at the main Library at 10:30 a.m.
- Sunday, Feb 8th: the popular WinterFest Social from 2-4 p.m. This is also the kick-off event for Chelmsford’s One Book program, so we will be handing out copies of The Sandcastle Girls along with a program brochure and a colorful bibliography of books about Armenia and the Armenian Genocide. Armenian folk music and dance songs will be provided by Ara Jeknavoroian and Harry Alexanian.
- Sunday, Feb 8th: start of the Center Village ArtWalk. Eleven artists and nine businesses in Center Village are participating in the Artwalk, so stroll around the Center and viewing the displays in the shop windows. Then, cast your vote for your favorite – a People’s Choice ballot will be available at the library, or you can vote online at https://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/winterfest/artwalk
- Sunday, Feb 8th: opening of the WinterFest Photography Contest February Photography Exhibit. There will be a “People’s Choice” ballot box for the public to vote for their favorite photographs in each of the 3 categories. On Sunday the Cultural Council will hand out awards for the juried prize for each category, but the People’s Choice award won’t be announced until the end of the month. The Cultural Council will also recognize the 2015 grant recipients.
We’ve had plenty of snow already this year, and this weekend is the time to get out and enjoy winter!
