‘Tis the Season for Tenley WinterFest

Tenley WinterFest YetiIt’s November, which means Tenley WinterFest is just around the corner – and we can barely contain our excitement. Local shops, restaurants, schools, the library, and even the fire station are working together to create another unique, yeti-themed seasonal celebration for the community.

Start marking your calendars now so you don’t miss out on this year’s fantastic array of events for all ages. The week of WinterFest kicks off on November 27 with the popular hunt for the Tenley Yeti at local businesses, as well as the return of “Winter Feast” dining specials at more than a dozen neighborhood restaurants. Discounts of up to 20% will have you hanging up your pots and pans and eating out all week long.

Other events during the week include a historic walking tour featuring the “First Ladies of Tenleytown,” special holiday film screenings, live music from area a cappella groups, Middle C Music and local band Cheaper Than Therapy, an art show and sale at Iona, holiday tree and garland sales, and crafts for kids at the library. Plus Tenleytown merchants will have holiday light displays and special promotions throughout the week.

Winter Market 2WinterFest culminates with the Winter Market at Janney Elementary on December 5, which features hand-made crafts, art, decor, collectibles, jewelry and accessories, and baked goods. Artisans and entrepreneurs of all ages can register now to sell their creations to holiday shoppers. More than 80 vendors participated last year, offering great gifts at every price point. And you just might see the Tenley Yeti while you are there.

With so much to do during Tenley WinterFest, you won’t want to leave the neighborhood, so invite your friends to come join the fun.
