Winnie-the-Pooh is the world’s most beloved bear. But did you know that the real Winnie was from White River? Each year, the town celebrates Winnie’s story with a festival held the 3rd weekend in August.
The festival is a three-day event that includes dances, parades, historical re-enactments, live entertainment, community meals, a tradeshow, among other locally-hosted events. Winnie’s Hometown Festival combines White River’s small-town charm wrapped up in a distinct yearly theme, all within the historical context of Winnie’s journey to prominence. You won’t regret spending a weekend learning about how White River played a role in Winnie’s upbringing.
Don’t forget to have your photo taken at the Winnie Statue and visit the White River Heritage Museum to explore the history of the town and see the large collection of Winnie-the-Pooh memorabilia.
