Stanley is one of the coldest places in the continental United States - so, of course, it hosts one of the best winter festivals around. The Stanley Winterfest is all about snow, beer, and keeping it weird! The family-friendly event happens every President’s Day weekend.
Join the town in a glow in the dark parade to local bars and restaurants, ending at the Mountain Village Resort Velvet Falls Dance Hall Winterfest Kickoff Beach Party!
This 40k or 30k event winds through exciting and varied terrain all in view of the beautiful Sawtooth Mountains.
Stanley Winterfest's most popular event! Build your own outhouse sled and race it down Ace of Diamonds Blvd!
Stanley has YEAR ROUND RAFTING! This is a fun event for all ages.
It wouldn't be a Stanley party without a street dance!
