Rossland Winter Carnival

Canada’s longest running carnival in the West Kootenay BC Since 1898

Welcome to the Rossland Winter Carnival Site
& Blizzard Music Fest
Thursday January 26 - Sunday January 29, 2023

Rossland Winter Carnival, since 1898!

Olaus Jeldness would be amazed. He was the Norwegian miner who, way back in 1898, initiated Canada’s Oldest Winter Carnival.

We are excited to announce the return of the Rossland Winter Carnival, to be held the weekend of January 26th to January 29th, 2023!

Community and family-oriented activities will decorate this historical weekend, with lots of reasons and ways to celebrate!  Ice sculptures, snow slides, tobogganing, skating, local business specials, and more!

Olaus would be astounded to see boarders and skiers flying through the air during Saturday’s fantastic “The Game” Rail Jam competition in downtown Rossland.
