​Ruby’s Inn is set to host its 33rd annual Bryce Canyon Winter Festival, which will be held President’s Day weekend, Feb. 16-18. The event will feature several free and paid family-friendly clinics, demos, tours and activities, including a balloon glow after dark—an activity that was introduced at last year’s festival.
“One reason we hold the Winter Festival is to provide opportunities for visitors to enjoy the beautiful
winterland of Bryce Canyon Country,” Deanna Moore, Winter Festival director at Ruby’s Inn, said. “The festival is a great yearly tradition that has seen a lot of success—it not only gives our guests dozens of great activities to participate in, but also showcases the unique winter scenery of Bryce Canyon.”
“We’ve had several people ask if we are still having the festival with the low amount of snow, but I tell
them that 90 percent of our activities are not dependent on weather, so plan on coming.” Moore said.
Some of the outdoor activities included in the three-day festival schedule are cross country ski tours,
archery clinics, snowshoe tours and ski clinics. In addition, the festival highlights several indoor activities for those looking to stay out of the cold. These activities include photography clinics, dance instruction, pottery making, photo contest, crafts for kids, kayaking demos, watercolor painting, cookie decorating and family history clinics.
Adventurers will also find several other activities at the Winter Festival. A complete schedule of event
activities can be found here. “We want everyone who attends to feel like they have plenty to do,” Moore said. “The various activities ensure that kids, teenagers and adults will all be entertained.”
Aside from the activities available at the Winter Festival, Ruby’s Inn also provides additional adventures that are available all winter long. These activities include outdoor ice skating, horse-drawn sleigh rides, horseback riding and cross-country skiing.
Depending on weather conditions, events at the Winter Festival are subject to change; however, the
event will still be held regardless of snow levels. Those wishing to sign up for competitions or who are
