Winter WonderFEST Returns to Hudson Fields

Since 2016, Festival of Cheer, Inc., a non-profit philanthropic organization, has awarded over $150,000 to charitable organizations through their grant program, plans to bring back Winter WonderFEST at Hudson Fields during the holiday season. The event will have limited capacity and it will be a stay-in-your-car experience.

“Hudson Fields is happy to partner again with Winter WonderFEST for their second year at our venue,” Julie Hudson said. “We love to work with organizations that bring fun and exciting events to our community.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be different from their first WonderFEST in 2019. “The WonderFEST Express: A Journey to the North Pole,” will be the only attraction available. Last year, the event included a Christmas Village which offered Schellville, a carnival-type midway with rides and games. There was also a lodge that offered dining, an open-air ice rink and a Christmas tree farm.

“This year it will be a totally drive through experience,” Hudson said. “The one-mile ride begins with a light show that ends with a fun ride through Santa’s Workshop. Children will see the elves working in the workshop and there will be a glass box where they can place their Christmas list. They will then see an elf take the list and hand-deliver it to Santa.”

At the end of the ride, Santa will wave at each car to acknowledge he has the wish list. With each ticket purchased, children will be given a North Pole-themed blank list that children and parents can fill out as they travel through the light show. The event is designed to give children the chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas without having to sit on Santa’s lap.

“Through the tough times of COVID restrictions, Hudson Fields has been a viable option for many events that wanted to continue to operate in 2020 but need more space to comply with the restrictions,” Hudson said. “It has been great to work with these different organizations this year and we look forward to working with them in the future.”

WonderFEST will open November 20 and last through December 31. General admission tickets on Monday through Thursday are $20 per car which admits up to seven people. On Friday, Saturday or Sunday, tickets are $25 per car for up to seven. On any day of the week, vans holding up to 15 people will cost $50 and buses holding 16 or more passengers cost $90. Hours are 5 PM until 10 PM. Tickets may be purchased online at https://www.tickettailor.com/events//winterwonderfest/451065#.
