The Seward Chamber of Commerce is seeking community input for its upcoming Winter Weekends initiative. Though much of the city begins to slow down as winter sets in, the Chamber has begun the early stages of planning year-round weekend events for visitors and residents alike.

“In the past we’ve organized Winter Weekends, and we are looking to bring those back this year,” said Chamber Spokesperson Kat Sorensen. “We’ll have events, deals, specials, and so if any community member has things that they’d like to suggest or offer for those, we’re in the early stages and looking for some ideas from our community because all of our best events are community-driven.”

Sorensen went on to say that Winter Weekends tend to accompany significant dates and other events, and though COVID-19 concerns have cancelled some winter traditions, many opportunities still remain. 

“In the past we’ve done them around the Seward Music and Arts Festival, but that won’t be happening this year,” she said. “Some dates that we have in mind are for Valentine’s weekend, New Year’s weekend, and the weekend of Shop Small Saturday, which is that Saturday after Thanksgiving.” 

Sorensen added that all planned events and promotions will allow for social distancing and follow CDC guidelines. Please send any ideas for Winter Weekends to chamber@seward.com.
