Orono, Ont. – Get ready for Brimfest – Brimacombe’s annual weekend-long celebration presented by KX96, 94.9 The Rock and 107.7 CKDO. This event focuses on fun for the whole family, on and off the slopes. Starting Saturday, February 29 to Sunday, March 1, Brimfest will be a two-day event packed with deals, contests, food, music and giveaways.

“We always look forward to hosting Brimfest,” says Mark Rutherford, General Manager at Brimacombe. “This annual weekend event is our way of celebrating our history with all of our skiers and snowboarders. Brimfest is tons of fun for all ages!”

This year’s Brimfest will include retro fashion day and crazy costume day. Dust off those snowsuits from the ‘90s and bring out the craziest costume you can find for a fun-filled day on the slopes.
