Winterfest returns, and it's FREE!

Winterfest, presented by Bank of America and World Wide Technology, returns this holiday season to light up your life with a whimsical wintry light display. Beginning November 20, 2020, Winterfest will transform Kiener Plaza into a magical wonderland that will delight people of all ages as they drive around the park. Winterfest will feature more than 60,000 lights in the trees of Kiener Plaza to complement the iconic backdrop of the Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse in the heart of downtown St. Louis.  Winterfest is free to enjoy and will be available every night of the week, from 5 – 9 p.m.   

In addition to the twinkling lights to make your traditional holiday drive complete, Winterfest will feature virtual activities throughout the holidays to help bring the cheer of Winterfest home.
