The winter season does not indicate the end of fun in Wyoming County – quite the contrary, winter offers sights, sounds and things to do that no other season can offer!
Start the holiday season off right with the Perry Rotary Show on November 7 and 8. This annual holiday festival show features local acts and is a treat for the entire family. If you are looking for outdoor winter adventures, then Wyoming County is the place to be. Experience some of the best cross-country skiing trails and snowmobiling trails that Western New York has to offer at Byrncliff Resort and Conference Center. Stay and play right at Byrncliff, as the resort offers accommodations and a restaurant on-site. If snowmobiling is your preferred activity in the winter, Wyoming County features miles of trails. Pick up a snowmobile map at multiple locations throughout the county and hit the trails!
The Holiday Delights Festival, on December 3rd in Perry, will celebrate the magic of the season with food, music and fun for all ages. Throughout the month of December, enjoy the Santa Express Trail on the Arcade & Attica Railroad. Sing Christmas carols on your way to the “North Pole” to meet Santa and be sure to bring your camera and your pajamas! Take part in Moonlight Magic in the village of Warsaw on December 3 - a holiday promotion featuring caroling and specials throughout the shops in town.
As the holiday activities come to an end, ring in the New Year at Last Night Perry, a fun, alcohol-free, family-oriented New Year’s Eve Celebration featuring performers and athletic recreation all evening long. Winter activities abound in the New Year. Test your luck at the Annual North East Ice Tour Ice Fishing Tournament on Silver Lake in February, take part in the Annual Snow Drag in Arcade, or create a cardboard sled and try out the annual Cardboard Olympics at Byrncliff Resort in Varysburg.
