Saint Paul Winter Carnival 


Join us for the 138th Saint Paul Winter Carnival, the "Coolest Celebration on Earth" since 1886. It is the oldest winter festival in the United States!

The Winter Carnival continues to bring family-friendly events and community pride to Saint Paul and the Twin Cities metro area.

Dozens of free events, both traditional favorites and new attractions, will entertain those of all ages. Most events take place in downtown Saint Paul, in and around Rice Park and Landmark Center, as well as at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.

The Saint Paul Festival and Heritage Foundation manages and produces the Saint Paul Winter Carnival.
