The fun does not stop at the Oregon WinterFest!
For the first time 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! Be sure to 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!
You can paint your own gratitude rocks with the Bend Joy Project, experience some hands-on IB activity fostering curiosity and reflection with Seven Peaks School, decorate yummy cookies with Creative Cookie Experience and get in on an amazing face painting experience from Whimsy Entertainment!
Join us for the Royal Run, an adventurous 5k race through the 2019 Oregon WinterFest! You’ll start and finish in the grass area behind the Deschutes Brewery warehouse.
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.
For aspiring Princes and Princesses, join us at the Kid’s Hot Cocoa Run on Sunday, February 17th. Costumes are encouraged!
Join us for the first Kids Rock Race of the season! Kids will be crowned and then will run from station to station collecting the ingredients, and as they cross the finish line they will get the final touch of hot chocolate and a finishers ribbon. This event will leave the little runners feeling like they rule the world!
