Kingston ushers in the 2022 holiday season with the return of the annual Snowflake Festival on Friday December 2nd. This is a free community event. This year promises to dazzle guests of all ages with an array of holiday-themed performances, exhibitions, entertainment, and open stores offering treats and warm beverages to all visitors. The Snowflake Festival will run from 6pm thru 8pm with a wide array of holiday themed attractions throughout Uptown’s Historic Stockade District.

The Snowflake Festival is produced by the Kingston Uptown Business Association (KUBA) and presenting sponsors are Mainetti & Mainetti P.C. and Ulster Savings Bank. Visitors are encouraged to explore Uptown’s charming, historic streets as they are decorated and filled with live entertainers including carolers, dancers, horse-drawn carriage rides, a fire torch juggler, ice sculpture carvings and much more. The festival will have a main stage with live performances as well as awarding bikes to the children who have won the 2022 Bike Raffle.

If you would like to sponsor a bike to help put a smile on a lucky local child on December 2nd, please see the form below for details!

One of the evening’s featured highlight will be the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus on an antique fire truck and their lighting of Kingston’s holiday tree at the intersection of Wall and North Front Streets. Santa will then settle-in on the Senate House grounds to meet with children of all ages.

KUBA and the Snowflake Committee look forward to seeing you soon!
