In 2022, youth in our community were invited to dream up a mascot that inspires and connects us to the pride and spirit of Biddeford Winterfest. Come to WinterFest and meet the new Mascot!

WinterFest is all about making sure kids in Biddeford and surrounding communities have access to outdoor winter fun.
