Presented by Orlando Health, the ninth annual MetroWest WinterFest will welcome thousands of attendees to the MetroWest Golf Club on Sunday, Dec. 11 from 3 to 7 p.m.
Staged by the MetroWest Master Association (MWMA), MetroWest WinterFest is a free community event designed for families with young children.
“WinterFest brings the MetroWest neighborhood together for an afternoon of holiday fun and camaraderie,” said Julie Sanchez, MWMA General Manager.

WinterFest will include:
- Free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus
- 16-ton snow slide and play area
- Holiday-themed performances by MetroWest Elementary School and Westpointe Elementary School
- Merry-go-round, bungee bouncer, and a ballistic swing carnival ride
- Face painters
- Horse and carriage rides
- Food Truck Zone
WinterFest will also feature a check presentation from MWMA to MetroWest Elementary School and Westpointe Elementary School.
MetroWest WinterFest 2022 benefits Edgewood Children’s Ranch, a nonprofit, residential program that helps boys and girls ages 6-17 address and overcome behavioral issues in a positive, safe environment. Every year, MetroWest communities and businesses compete in the MetroWest WinterFest Charity Challenge by collecting gift cards for the Ranch.
“Edgewood Children’s Ranch is part of our MetroWest community and offers much needed support for children with behavioral challenges. It’s our honor to support the Ranch and its exemplary residential program,” said Sanchez.
WinterFest is a rain or shine event, except in the case of extreme weather. Pets and coolers are not allowed.
