WinterPLAY Festival

Friday, February 19, 2016 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, February 21, 2016 - 8:00 pm

The WinterPLAY Festival is an annual celebration in Wood Buffalo and is a milestone on the winter calendar. For the past five years, Wood Buffalo has honoured its northern heritage and culture, as well as a love of sports and recreation in the great outdoors at the WinterPLAY Festival.
Entering its ninth year, the Shootout on The Snye hockey tournament takes place during WinterPLAY, drawing upwards of 40 teams to Snye Park for an exciting game of pond hockey. Players of all ages are welcome and winners are recognized at the Festival’s closing ceremony.
Residents spend half the year in the powdery snow and brisk air of winter, embracing it to the fullest. From the gentle beauty of a soft evening snowfall to the warmth of a crackling bonfire to the excitement of a frenzied game of pond hockey, WinterPLAY is a winter experience like no other.
Bring your family, celebrate Wood Buffalo’s northern spirit and be a WinterPLAYER!
