Team USA Winterfest

Team USA Winterfest

Saturday, February 24 | Olympic Skating Oval & Olympic Jumping Complex

The Team USA WinterFest presented by HERSHEY'S is a multi-stop festival crisscrossing the country—and making a stop in Seoul—to bring the energy and excitement of the Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 to Team USA fans around the globe. The tour will feature athlete meet and greets, interactive experiences and more. New this year will be the HERSHEY'S S'moresmobile along with the Bobsled Boomerang presented by HERSHEY'S. The new S'moresmobile will be providing Team USA fans free, full-size, delicious HERSHEY'S S'mores for fans to enjoy while sharing memories over an all-American classic treat. The Bobsled Boomerang will give fans the chance to experience what it's like to be in an Olympic bobsled while also capturing and sharing the moment on social.

The Team USA Social Media Truck and the Curling Challenge—both presented by OREO—are also new to the tour. The social media truck will feature multiple interactive stations including: Team USA Athlete Snapchat Face Swap; a designated photo and GIF station; and a digital message board for fans to share good-luck messages with Team USA athletes ahead of the 2018 Games. The Team USA Curling Challenge will allow fans to test their curling skills and enter for a chance to win a trip to Park City, Utah, for the 10th stop on the tour, the Team USA Town Takeover during the opening weekend of the PyeongChang Games.
