Rogue Winterfest

Rogue Winterfest


Josephine County’s largest holiday festival, Rogue Winterfest, is held at Evergreen Federal Bank’s Bear Hotel. Each year, this venue undergoes a spectacular transformation into a winter wonderland, bringing the community together to help support the Rogue Valley’s mental health organizations: Family Solutions, Kairos, and Options for Southern Oregon. Rogue Winterfest is designed to bring our community and our healthcare agencies together, increasing awareness of mental illness and the services available through these organizations.

Rogue Winterfest kicks off with the popular Gala Event and Grand Auction, which features an exciting selection of creatively decorated trees, artworks, and outdoor displays. Family activities take place during the Weekend Holiday Event, and the Culinary Christmas Classic brings the series of holiday events to a delicious close. We warmly invite you to join hundreds of volunteers, artists, decorators, and local businesses in creating a healthier community for us all.
