COR Development is teaming up with Helping Hounds Dog Rescue, Limp Lizard, Meier’s Creek Brewing Company at Iron Pier, C&S Companies, QPK Design, and Blueberries & Lace, to bring back Winterfest to The Syracuse Inner Harbor on Sunday, February 19th. The event will be held at the Iron Pier building (720 Van Rensselaer Street, Syracuse, NY 13204).

 

Winterfest was first celebrated in 1985 and has since expanded into the snow celebration that it now is. COR Development and partners are delighted to add more excitement to the 38th Annual Winterfest and bring back by popular demand the Human Dogsled Race, which will be held at the Syracuse Inner Harbor with all proceeds benefitting Helping Hounds Dog Rescue.

  • Food Trucks
  • Ice Carving Demonstrations – Presented by C&S Companies
  • Solo Stove Fire Pits & S’mores
  • Family Art Classes with Right Mind Syracuse
  • Human Dog Sled Race – This year there are three categories offered (see details below)
  • Craft Beers, Raffles & More with Meier’s Creek Brewing Company, now open at Iron Pier
  • DJ with Live Music - Skip Clark with 92.1 The Wolf will be joining us again this year to be the official race announcer
  • “Best Team Spirit / Decorated Sled” contest judged by the Syracuse Crunch
  • Yard Games & More

 

All are welcome to participate in this event to help benefit the Helping Hounds Dog Rescue, whether an organization, family, or a group of friends.

 

“Every year COR’s Winterfest event at the Syracuse Inner Harbor has been a tremendous success. Proceeds from this event will support Helping Hounds Dog Rescue and its mission ‘to providing a compassionate approach to dog rescue by matching homeless dogs from overcrowded shelter systems with a loving home.’ COR is excited to partner once again with Helping Hounds, and the Syracuse Winterfest committee, to host the human dogsled races benefiting Helping Hounds Dog Rescue at Iron Pier. We’d like to thank the public for their generosity, and our local partners for helping make this event such a success, and we welcome all to sign up and join the fun!” said Merissa Lynch, Marketing Manager for COR Development.
