THANK YOU Peterborough Community!

A special thank you to the 23 Peterborough community venues that opened their doors to allow Snofest events to take place in their facilities. Thank you to all their staff and volunteers for hosting great events. 

Thank you to all the Peterborough people that attended our Snofest Events to make this our most successful year to date. It was wonderful to see our community getting out in the winter time becoming more active and trying new events. 

A special thank you to my Snofest Winter Carnival committee for their dedication and many hours volunteered to plan and implement the whole month of Snofest activities. Our planning starts as early as August and we work right up until the end of January, providing Peterborough with a Winter Carnival experience. Now it is time for Snofest Pete can go back to sleep until next winter!!

History of Snofest

ParticipACTION is a national non-profit organization whose mission was to help Canadians sit less and move more. Most people to this day still remember the TV commercials with Hal and Joanne showing us how to be more active. ParticipACTION was established in 1971 and worked with many partners including sport, physical activity, recreation organizations and government and corporate sponsors. 

In 1976, ParticipACTION came to Peterborough with a pilot project that would help get people more active in the wintertime. As a result of this program, the first Peterborough Snofest was created!  The Festival started off as a one day Carnival and has now evolved into a whole month of events.
