Frostival started in Fargo as a two-day winter festival celebrating the “cool” of winter during the quietest time of the year.
Over the years, the spearheading committee decided to expand the festival into a six-week festival to help encourage placemaking and to bring the residents and visitors outside for some fun.
This year, some new events include a Frostival Sauna Week, a horseshoe tournament and the Hearth & Frost block party. The old favorites are coming back, too. The Coffee & Cocoa Crawl, candlelight trail walk, snow sculpture competition and more will be back and bigger than ever. Frostival dates for 2023 are Jan. 14 through Feb. 25.
