Planning has begun for 2023 Webster village events

26 Jan

Despite the fact that we really haven’t had much in the way of winter, we’re definitely not anywhere near spring yet. But planning has already begun for a very busy spring and summer in the Village of Webster.

At their most recent meeting, members of the Webster Business Improvement District (BID) started sketching out the long list of special events our local merchants are planning this year. The BID is the organization, remember, that sponsors the very popular Trick or Treat TrailWinter WonderlandFriday Night Gazebo Concerts, Wine Walks and others. Those events are definitely returning this year, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg. Just about every month this summer, beginning in April, the BID has scheduled at least one entertaining, family-friendly event, and sometimes two or three or more.

Things kick off around Easter with the return of the very popular Easter Egg Hunt. More than 500 kids and their parents participated in last year’s first-ever event, which was successful in part because of the incredible support from local businesses. (Click here to read the blog I wrote about it.)

Later in the spring and summer, these events will also be returning (although dates have still not been finalized):

  • Friday night concerts at the gazebo
  • Two Wine Walks
  • Webster Jazz Fest
  • Two Family Games Nights
  • Beer Walk
  • Bourbon Bash
  • Trick or Treat Trail
  • Webster’s Winter Wonderland

There was even some talk about perhaps adding a scarecrow contest to the mix. And who knows what other events the BID might pull out of their sleeves in the coming week.

And make sure not to forget about the month-long Fall in Love With Webster event, which will kick off on Feb. 1. I’ll be providing lots more details about this soon, so stay tuned.

    Hi Missy, I just noticed that Empire Lanes either sold to another company or has changed focus. I drove by there and the brand new sign outside was “Bolero” and they were hiring for all shifts & positions. Lots of cars & trucks there, at 11 am so I didn’t see school buses or anything noteworthy. They must be remodeling the inside. I didn’t have time to stop & look in to be nosey. Just wondered through your connections what may be happening.Thanks

      Thanks, “Read.” I haven’t heard anything about that, but it sounds like something worth investigating. Thank you for the tip!

        My contact at the Chamber of Commerce saw your comment and provided an answer. He wrote: “Bowlero Corporation operates Bowlmor Lanes, a chain of bowling centers. Bowlero acquired all the AMF bowling centers in 2013, essentially saving them (AMF) from bankruptcy. My latest information is that they are remodeling the Empire Blvd location and rebranding the AMF name to the Bowlmor name.”

    What about the Garlic Festival?

      The Garlic Festival is not a BID event, and while I think it will be happening this year, I haven’t gotten any details about it yet.
