New Holiday Traditions at Worlds of Fun’s WinterFest

Families and guests of all ages have a new holiday tradition to celebrate. With WinterFest, Worlds of Fun’s latest addition, visitors now have a seasonal celebration that brings the North Pole to Kansas City. The new attraction is KC’s premier immersive holiday experience—and a one-stop-shop for holiday delights, sights and sounds.

Lights and holiday decor abound at WinterFest. Each night begins with the lighting of a seven-story Christmas tree, followed by nearly endless seasonal activities. Catch one of 10 live shows throughout the evening, including Charlie Brown’s Christmas Spectacular (perfect for young ones) and Cool Yule Christmas (a classic holiday tunes showcase).

No holiday experience is complete without tasty treats. Sip on hot chocolate or a signature hot buttered rum, sample festive favorites and plenty more. Afterwards, visit Artisan Alley, where 30 local makers craft wares right before guests’ eyes. Find new decorations for your home and tree at The Mistletoe, a market that carries everything from high-end décor to limited edition hot air balloon ornaments designed to match the Worlds of Fun balloon.

End your evening by decorating cookies with Mrs. Clause, getting your picture taken with St. Nick, taking a ride on the Grand Carrousel or hitting the ice for a skating session. No matter what you do or how you celebrate the season, WinterFest is sure to be your new favorite holiday tradition. To learn more, visit
