Salem’s annual “Winterfest Beach Bash” is set to return in February of 2023 with the incredible “Band of Oz”. The latest version of this wintertime beach party will take place on Friday, February 3, at 7 p.m. inside the Salem Civic Center.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and proceeds from the event will benefit the Penguin Club’s community service projects.
