Celebrating Winter in Bayfield
The Bayfield Peninsula truly is a winter wonderland. With over 100 inches of annual snowfall, miles of ice and a lake that moderates the harsh winter temperatures, there’s a good chance that if you come looking for us in the winter, you’ll find us outside.
In March, the brisk breath-stealing North winds give way to warmer, promise-filled breezes of the South. They tease us with dreams of warm summer nights, and we locals start to get a little squirrely.
We created Bayfield Winter Festival to combat this annual bout of crazy, and it became the annual last Huzzah of all things winter. It’s our way of saying, “Dear Winter, we love you, and thanks for coming, but it’s time to leave. Come back in November. It’s a celebration of ice, of snow, and of course, cabin fever!
