Visitors can meet with Santa, enjoy cookies and hot chocolate, or go on a wagon ride in Downtown to get in the festive spirit.  This event is free, brought to the community by the Kiwanis Club of Findlay.


Enjoy WinterFest with a beverage in-hand!  Many Downtown locations will be highlighting their winter beverages, served in special DORA cups.

Plan to stop by False Chord Brewing’s DORA station located near the WinterFest Market!

 DORA is Findlay’s Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area, meaning if you purchase your favorite beer, wine, or cocktail in a DORA cup you are permitted to enjoy it as you walk around WinterFest and in participating retailers and attractions. Those locations will be indicated with a DORA decal so keep your eyes peeled! For additional details and to learn more go to
