2018 Winter Festival on December 14th

Winter Festival is This Friday, December 14th

The City of Margate’s annual spectacular Winter Festival, featuring an amazing Paintscaping light show, will take place on Friday, December 14th from 6 to 10 p.m. at Margate Boulevard from State Road 7 to Northwest 58th Avenue (the Clock Tower). 

The one-of-a-kind, 8-minute 3D holiday light show will transform the walls of City Hall into a magical winter wonderland with our now signature, 3D Paintscaping show. 

In partnership with the Margate Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), the Winter Festival also features real “Florida Style” snow (for ages 11 and under), rides for the children, arts and crafts activities, a craft fair, food vendors, and pictures with Santa (bring your own camera and share your photos with #OurMargate).
