From the creators of The Space In Stack Overflow, and its sequel The Space In Stack Exchange, comes an all-new production…

Yeah, should I put a space in "Winterbash"? Or are they interchangeable? The tag name seems to suggest no space well it looks like someone changed all the tags to add a space, but I've seen it used both ways.

As an additional question, should it be capitalized?

The official name of the event has always been Winter Bash, with a space, and that's how it's been typed in all of our blog announcements.

But... that's not necessarily how it's always typed in casual conversation or on Meta, and Winterbash is also a fairly common substitution. Even I use both interchangeably all the time.

That said, Winter Bash is the name of an event, and is thus a proper noun, so it generally should be capitalized if you are keen on following proper grammar.
