The holiday season is all about the food, and WinterFest at Worlds of Fun is no different. Lead by the creativity of our executive chef Wesley Boston, our culinary team has introduced a special menu featuring more than 20 items just for WinterFest – making this holiday event incomplete without trying some of our tasty creations.

While you can still find some of your beloved favorites, the food featured during WinterFest isn’t your standard amusement park eats. During this seasonal celebration, we combine a traditional holiday-style menu with inventive creations you can’t experience anywhere else. From smoked turkey and carved ham to tuxedo bacon and holiday egg rolls, you’re sure to find something for everyone at special dining locations throughout the park.
