The Royal Oak Winter Blast has been rescheduled due to impending weather, according to event organizers.

Originally slated for Friday, Feb. 3-Sunday, Feb. 5, organizers have pushed the winter festival back two weeks so attendees and vendors won’t have to deal with frigid temperatures.

The Winter Blast will now take place Friday, Feb. 17-Sunday, Feb. 19.

“Winter Blast is a much-anticipated event that offers an abundance of seasonal, outdoor experiences courtesy of so many entities — from the downtown small businesses to musicians to food truck operators and more — it’s a big investment for everyone involved,” said Jon Witz, Winter Blast Royal Oak event producer, in a press release.

Witz added, “Our goal is to deliver an event that is as successful and safe as possible, and if we have the opportunity to move away from a weekend that could deliver bitter cold temps, we want to make that move. The same level of programming and entertainment will remain in place for the new weekend.”
