Winterfest is the last BIG Girl Scout event of 2013!  

It is a magical winter wonderland of crafts, games, and holiday shopping created by Teens Take Over and troops from all over Northern California. Make your own unique room decorations, impress people with your glamorous jewelry-making abilities, stand out from the crowd with face paint and henna tattoos, play exciting games to win prizes, and shop for one of a kind holiday gifts that you will not find at the mall!  Over 150 booths of crafts, games, and shopping all in one amazing event taking place at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds (SCCF) with convenient parking and food sold by SCCF.  

All levels of troops are invited to attend as participants and bring along friends and family. Junior troops are invited to run activity booths* or just attend as participants.  Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops are invited to run shopping mall and activity booths* or just attend as participants.  If your troop is hosting a food drive of your own for the holiday season, this is a great chance for you to end your collection and drop off your donations at the event.  A week-long council food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank wraps up at the event to help the hungry through the holidays.  Winterfest 2013 patches will be sold at this event.  

Please Note: *Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops who plan to run booths at Winterfest 2013 must register separately and be accepted for this activity under Winterfest 2013 Booths. Information on how booths work can be found in the Winterfest Booth Information Packet for 2013.
