Welcome to Winterval


A warm welcome to Winterval!

2016 is Winterval’s 5th birthday and we have made this years festival the best yet. A small group of volunteers got together in 2012 and came up with an idea to make Waterford the capital of Christmas.

In 2015 in just 4 short years the festival attracted over 500,000 visitors from all over the country and the festival is now the biggest event in the city every year. There are lots of new attractions at this years festival and as always many of our events are free of charge.

I hope you enjoy Winterval this year and plan to return to enjoy Waterford’s new greenway in the spring!
