Personal opinion: Yes. Make a new one for each year.
If someone comes on here and wants to read about 2019 Winterfest information, they open the Winterfest topic. They see posts from a few years ago on the current page, so now they spend some time trying to find the first post dealing with 2019, to make sure their information hasn't already been posted or their question already asked and answered. If you have a "Winterfest 2019" thread, then the same user can click on it and start reading from page 1. They just saved a few minutes of time (and pageviews and database processing and their own personal frustration).
Admins/mods can lock threads once they "expire" (2019 Winterfest can be locked at the new year) and either start a new one immediately, or a few months before the event starts.
And, if the admins/mods are so against new topics being made, they should lock it to the general group here and they (the admins/mods) can make new ones as needed. If you don't see an active topic for your post, it goes in General - if the admins find it relevant for a new topic, they start the topic and move the posts.
