Homer Winterfest 2024

Homer Winterfest is a community event created and maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers, made possible by generous donations and advertisers.  Organizations from all over the community present fun-filled events to make every edition memorable. Since 2000, Homer Winterfest has added a welcome bright spot to our Central New York winters (with the 2021 through 2023 events suspended due to Covid-19 concerns and limitations).
