Wellsboro Winter Celebration

Wellsboro residents combat winter fatigue by coming out to play in a big way during its Winter Celebration, held annually on the third weekend in February.

The centerpiece of the festival is a variety of activities held early Saturday afternoon in Wellsboro’s downtown Main Street shopping district. Visitors can join locals in enjoying ice and wood carving demonstrations, a chili cook-off, pony rides, and a variety of other activities. The Endless Mountains Music Festival Jazz Fest is another focal point of the weekend, highlighted by a dinner concert in the Penn Wells Hotel on Saturday evening and a Jazz Brunch at the Penn Wells on Sunday morning, in addition to other concerts on Thursday and Friday evenings. Throw in the Winter RallySprint, the Mt. Tom Challenge climb, and Dog Sled racing at Nessmuk Lake, and there is no reason not to come to Wellsboro for Winter Celebration.

Lodging packages for this weekend include two nights of lodging, Friday night dinner featuring our famous fish fry, Saturday night dinner and concert at Jazz Fest, and Sunday Jazz Brunch. It’s a great weekend for couples and for families.
