  • Reimagine Winter with Kitchener!

    This year has been challenging for our community. We haven’t been able to gather, socialize and celebrate like we’re used to. More time spent indoors may be making us feel a little more isolated from our community. So, we’re reimagining how we experience and enjoy the winter season. Reimagine Winter offers activities, attractions and programs that give community members the outlet they need during these challenging times. Kitchener is a vibrant and resilient community, and the winter season is still ours to enjoy safely. Let’s reimagine it.
