January 28 – February 3, 2018

Screw hibernating and embrace winter with the passion of Norseman. North Liberty’s Beat the Bitter is back with a week full of activities to get you out of the house for some outdoor winter games and good cheer.

Join us in the tundra of North Liberty January 28 through February 3, 2018 for fun on the bleakest days of the year. On Friday, Feb. 2, gather in Penn Meadows Park for an evening of Fire & Ice including fireworks, horse drawn carriage rides, and a community bonfire, and again in the morning and afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 3 for the annual Beat the Bitter Winter Games. Warm back up Saturday night by getting cozy with your friends and neighbors on the Snuggie Bar Crawl.

Our 2018 schedule will be announce in November 2017. In the meantime, feel free to check out last year’s lineup of events and view last year’s highlight reel below.
