Visitors from around the world travel to New York's Adirondack Mountains to celebrate the annual Saranac Lake Winter Carnival alongside locals who have made it their tradition for generations. It's the longest-running event of its kind in the eastern U.S,. dating back to 1897.
Get ready for a fun 10-day festival that includes the famous Ice Palace, sports, performances, two parades, and three sets of spectacular fireworks. It's family friendly fun and it's sure to be your annual tradition. This year's carnival theme is "Mask-erade"
The Ice Palace is free, lit-up at night and open 24/7. Most of our events are free as well. View our schedule at the following link to see which events are free and which have an asterisk* that have a fee: www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com/schedule. The website schedule will be updated up to and during carnival and is the most updated source for carnival event information.
