We are excited to announce that we opened up a 2nd Seasonal location within The Lodge at Winterfest this year! For those of you that came last year, it is much different and even better! Instead of having rotating craft vendors, we just have one big Art Star shop that is within a 40 foot shipping container, which is along the perimeter of The Lodge. The other difference this year (from last) is that our store is accessible from within The Lodge (which is one of the huge heated tents) with giant sliding doors that we will keep open. It is warm, cozy and inviting with a fireplace inside (super excited about that!)
Right next door to us is beer and food. Throughout The Lodge are cozy couches, fireplaces (mantels from the Divine Lorraine Hotel) and much more. This year is a HUGE improvement from last year (which we all thought was pretty amazing anyway) so just wait until you see it! We encourage guests to make a day (or night) of it and enjoy all that Winterfest has to offer: ice skating, good food, booze, beer, arcade games, pool, the firepits + fireplaces, etc. PLUS you can get your holiday shopping done at Art Star! We are fully stocked with gifts to give everyone on your list this holiday!
DRWC is the fantastic non-profit behind all the development you are seeing along the waterfront, including Spruce Street Harbor Park and Winterfest. They are an incredible group of passionate people and we feel so honored to be a part of these projects. If you see any of the DRWC staff walking around, please thank them. They’ve worked so hard to make Winterfest amazing for you to enjoy! And we really think you will!
