The fun does not stop at the Oregon Winterfest!
For the first time this year the WinterFest Kid’s Area will be located both inside and out of the OMSI Science Tent sponsored by Lonza! That means it will be heated and lit! Bring the whole family inside for an eclectic display of fun!

Brain Teasers, Animal Secrets, Dinosaurs—Oh My! Too Much Fun in one place!
The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry Science (OMSI) will bring a collection of hands-on brainteasers challenge visitors to think both critically and creatively. Puzzles range in difficulty and content but most incorporate concepts of geometry, algebra and or physics and lead to fun (and often surprising) solutions!
Stay tuned for more fun vendors to come!

Join us for the Royal Run, an adventure obstacle course at the 2019 Oregon WinterFest!
Prepare to battle the elements, scaling walls, hiking over tires and crawling to make your way to the finish. The race will start the Les Schwab Amphitheater Ticket Office under the Start/Finish Arch. Get there early to stretch with your fellow runners! The trail will wind along the Old Mill District & Deschutes River. With a mixture of paved paths and groomed trails, this fun obstacle course is just tough enough to break a sweat—but everyone can join the fun at their own pace for this 5K!
The WinterFest Fire King and Ice Queen will be there to knight you with a souvenir glass (for the first 200 registrants) and a complimentary beverage as you cross the finish line. Post race celebrations will conclude at the Bent Lounge.
While this race isn’t for the littlest members of our royal court, the Hot Cocoa Run is geared for 3-10 year olds, with races for different age groups.
