We know how to enjoy the snow!


At Winterfest, you’ll gain a new appreciation for one of Buffalo’s most beautiful seasons. You can go sledding and ice skating, enter the snowman-building contest, or just warm up and relax with some free food and hot chocolate. Put on your gloves, and get ready for the coolest event of the year.

Annually in February

Location: Student Union Field and Student Union Lobby

No Snow? No Problem
