The Ultimate Artisan Shopping Experience at WinterFest

Josh Smith

Josh is enjoying his sixth season at Worlds of Fun and his third in the marketing department. He is a recent Northwest Missouri State alum. When he isn't at the park he is cheering on his favorite soccer team, Sporting Kansas City.

Worlds of Fun’s WinterFest is the perfect compilation of all holiday traditions! With ice skating, pictures with Santa, cookie decorating, festive treats and more lights than you can imagine, there’s no shortage of things to do in the park. One of my favorite things to do at WinterFest is browsing through the artisan shops featuring small businesses from the area. One trip around the park might be all you need to complete your Christmas shopping this year. Here is the list of vendors you should check out at WinterFest to support local businesses and check Christmas gift shopping off of your to-do list:
