Winter Carnival

Don't miss the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival! This 10-day celebration starts the first weekend in February. Parades, games, exhibits, celebrations, concerts, and more, all with a focus on family fun. We start and end with incredible fireworks. The Ice Palace (made from real ice right out of Lake Flower) comes with a King, Queen, and royal court.

Since 1897, our Winter Carnival has been a grassroots, volunteer-driven event that started as a celebration to break up the spectacular, but deep, winters. The extra impetus came from the village’s transition from lively logging community to wilderness research and cure center for tuberculosis.  The patients and residents needed a boost to their morale, and so the Winter Carnival was born.

Of course, we have plenty of lively, snow-centered activities and events, like the ski and snowshoe races, Ice Palace Fun Run, a curling exhibition, and snowball toss. We keep tradition alive with the woodman’s demonstration of logging skills and add modern fun like the Ultimate Frisbee Games and Fireman’s Broomball. There’s plenty of music, almost every day, from our vast pool of local talent.
