Looking for Snofest Pete?Snofest Pete

The 2018 Snofest Committee is currently looking for volunteers to be the Snofest mascot at Snofest events in January!  The committee is looking for someone with enthusiasm, who is comfortable around children, adults and seniors.  The mascot must be willing to dance, hug and give high fives!  We are looking for someone (or a couple people) who is available weekends, during the day and evenings.  Sorry - the mascot costume will only permit someone who is 5'9" or less! Although this is a volunteer position an honorarium will be provided.  If you are interested, please email info@peterboroughsnofest.ca

Snofest Brochure

2018 Snofest Brochures will be available at the end of November.  They will be available online, at the Recreation Division (210 Wolfe Street) and at the Peterborough Museum & Archives.

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.
