You Don’t Want to Miss These Events

Boston Wine Festival, Boston, MA
January 6-March 30
Your woodstove isn’t the only source of a warming red glow. All through the winter you can catch lectures and wine tastings that invite you to kick back, sip, and dream of Mediterranean climates. At the Boston Harbor Hotel. 888-660-9463; bostonwinefestival.net

New Hampshire Mac & Cheese Bake-Off, Concord, NH
January 14
We’ve always privately known it’s an art form; finally there’s an event bold enough to say it out loud. Bring your cheesiest, most decadent recipe and see how it stands up against New Hampshire’s best. At the Holiday Inn.
603-271-3696; nhdairypromo.org

Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition, Jackson, NH
January 20-22
This is the event for people who, as children, took building snowmen a little too seriously. Contenders craft everything from giant jack-in-the-boxes to ballerinas: a snowy menagerie that would make even Calvin and Hobbes proud. At Black Mountain. 603-383-9356; jacksonnh.com

Mushers Bowl, Bridgton, ME
January 21-22
What’s the average husky’s mpk (miles per kibble)? Find out at this townwide celebration of the classiest way to travel on snow. Watch the dogsled races or try it yourself. 207-647-3472; mainelakesmushersbowl.com

Moonlight Snowshoeing, East Charleston, VT
February 7
From the NorthWoods Stewardship Center, tour the Northeast Kingdom. Massive footwear and an awkward gait aren’t usually thought of as romantic, but try snowshoeing on a full-moon night with someone you love.
802-723-6551; northwoodscenter.org</p>

Dartmouth Winter Carnival, Hanover, NH
February 9-12
Catch this raucous festival of garishly dressed Ivy Leaguers doing ridiculous things in the snow, plus polar-bear swims, massive snow sculpture contests, and even a downhill canoe race. Costumes are optional, but just barely. 603-646-3399; dartmouth.edu

National Toboggan Championship, Camden, ME
February 10-12
Dads have been telling their kids for ages that they’re the best sledders in the world; now the folks at the Camden Snow Bowl are challenging them to prove it. Daredevils of all ages are invited to compete for the crown. 207-236-3438; camdensnowbowl.com

The Great Rotary Fishing Derby, Meredith, NH
February 11-12
Join the hardy souls on Lake Winnipesaukee for a weekend of stubbornly ignoring the elements, all for the love of fishing. 603-279-7600; meredithrotary.com
