At 126 years young, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival is one of the oldest in the United States. The week long event has been bringing joy to residents and visitors during the first week of February for over a century! Our signature ice palace, built entirely by volunteers from solid blocks of ice pulled from Lake Flower, serves as the center point of our festival! Highlights of the week include opening and closing fireworks, ski and snowshoe races, art shows and book sales, concerts, variety shows, and much more! The weekend is capped off by one of the most fun and unique gala parades you'll ever see. Join us in the mountains to celebrate winter in style.
