Sunnidale Winterama is a winter-themed festival presented by Clearview Township and has celebrated winter activities since 1975 in the village of New Lowell. Touting itself as "the greatest little show on snow", active volunteers known as the "Friends of Winterama" have organized this multi-day event filled with great family fun!
The Winterama weekend should be February 4 to February 6, 2022. All "in person activities" are cancelled by Clearview Township. The Friends of the Winterama volunteers are continuing with the Snow Sculpture Photo Contest, Best Beard Growing Contest and the Poster/Colouring Sheet Contest. These activities will be virtual and we hope that you keep the spirit of Winterama alive in Clearview Township.
