Welcome to Winterfaire. At this time of year, when many North American Residents are experiencing chilly weather in real life, we like to turn on the Second Life snow machines, set up pointy trees and blinky lights, and settle down for the hush of long winter nights.
Many Residents have transformed their homes and land into beautiful winter snowscapes, and they invite you to come by for a walk in the woods, a warm drink by a fire, or some neighborly conversation.
This year, the Winterfaire Grand Tour can be accessed inworld, through the Search >> Showcase feature in the viewer, and also on the Showcase section of the Second Life website. Specifically, the “Hotspots” tab in the Showcase has been given over to Winterfaire’s “cool” places of interest (and scroll down the page for more.) Some of the locations on the tour are on private islands not normally open to the public, so be sure you don’t miss them!
Watch for New Winterfaire Grand Tour Locations in the Showcase
We will be rotating new tour locations into the Showcase throughout the event, which runs until January 5th, so visit the Showcase more than once to see all the wonderful offerings.
