WELCOME TO WINTERFEST
Winterfest is a non-profit corporation that has several functions: We are a parking business, a trolley service, and present trolley tours, including the Winterfest tours in downtown Pensacola during the holiday season. If you would like to acquaint yourself with our organization before orientation, go to www.pensacolawinterfest.org and learn about our goals and accomplishments. You will become a part of the future success of Winterfest and we look forward to meeting you. Let us know you have received the appointment confirmation with a return email, text or call so that we are sure you have the proper instructions to complete a successful orientation. The office is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
OFFICE LOCATION AND PARKING
The Winterfest office is located in a green Victorian cottage at 226 East Intendencia Street in the Seville Historic District of downtown Pensacola. We are five blocks from Mrs. Moore's office at the Judicial Center on Government Street. Because no parking is allowed on either side of the block or in the driveway, you must park your car on an adjacent street and walk to the office. If someone brings you to the appointment and picks you up, they cannot wait in front of the office, across the street. Never park illegally on the street because neighbors will call the police. Please do not bring family members with you. Never enter the office from the rear. The black poodle is very protective.
