Now in its 3rd season, AYF WinterFest has become a yearly tradition bringing forth over 2000 people from across Canada and the United States and big names such as Karl Wolf and Armen Aloyan. This year promises to be bigger and better with performances by Armenia’s Silva Hakobyan and DJ DerHova, Massari, and 3 of Toronto’s own: Harout Bedrossian, Sevag Titizian and Pyunik Band, and The MacHams. We’re also showcasing some of Canada’s most iconic food trucks, indoor and outdoor activities, ice sculptures and ice bars, fire contortionists, horse carriage rides, Armenian dance performances, and much more.
whether you’re a foodie, an athlete, a music lover, or just looking for something exciting to do on a cold winter day—WinterFest has something for you!
About the committee
WinterFest is a festival of food, art, and Armenian and Canadian culture. The committee is part of the Armenian Youth Federation of Canada and was brought to life to bring together Armenians in a distinctly Canadian atmosphere in order to celebrate Armenian-Canadian culture. It is comprised of a number of young, experienced, and meticulous volunteers with fresh and modern ideas to carve the future of the Armenian community. After its inaugural success, the Armenian Youth Federation of Canada saw the need to pursue WinterFest as one of its yearly traditions and just as its name entails, it is a celebration of winter, proving that for Canadians, outdoor activities are not just reserved to summer.
