Since 1886 the Saint Paul Winter Carnival has been celebrating the wonders of winter. It is the oldest winter festival in the United States and offers fun for everyone. Get caught up on the legend of Boreas, King of the Winds and The Fire King and his Vulcan Crew here and you’ll feel like a carnival insider.
The Carnival has been extended this year to allow Super Bowl LII visitors to get a taste of the action and runs from January 25th to February 10th. There is so much fun to be had you’ll wish winter lasted all year. You can check out ice sculpture gardens, live music series, parades, ice bars, a royal coronation, family fun night and more. Perhaps the most exciting news about the 2018 Saint Paul Winter Carnival is that there will be an ice palace at Rice Park, the first since 2004!
