Event participants will include: ECOS, the Environmental Clearinghouse, leading the public on nature walks for Wild Winter Edibles at 12, 1, and 2 PM; the Glenville Rotary providing refreshments; Freemans Bridge Sports, who will bring their trailer of winter sports equipment and give lessons and free trials of snowshoes, x-country skis and more; the Arnold Farm and friends, providing horse drawn sleigh rides through the park; All Seasons Equipment, bringing winter equipment including snowmobiles and snow blowers on display; Amateur Ham Radio Operators, providing information and participation in sending radiograms around the world; Park Planning Commission members teaching “geocaching,” a sport that combines geography, technology and treasure hunting; NYS Encon officers, providing information on the environment, fauna, and outdoor wood boilers, and more.


A campfire will burn throughout the day to warm the toes. Broomball games between the town and the East Glenville Fire department are confirmed, with additional teams to be determined.

Winterfest is held in cooperation with the Town of Glenville Park Planning Commission.

All events are free, and subject to weather and conditions on the day of the event.
