Rossland Winter Carnival site!
Rossland Winter Carnival, since 1898!
Sure To Be Full of Spectacular Family Fun!!!
Olaus Jeldness would be amazed. He was the Norwegian miner who, way back in 1898, initiated Canada’s Oldest Winter Carnival.
Old traditions continue on Friday night with the carnival parade that gives participants a chance to dress up in costume and be part of the fun. While downtown watch Pyrophoria, the fire spinners as they entertain the crowd of young and old alike and be sure to visit the Olaus Ice Palace created by Slocan Ice Sculptures and listen to the live music of the Good Ol' Goats.
Still more to come on Saturday starting with the Fireman's Pancake breakfast in the morning and the amazing Sonny Samuelson Bobsled Race that comes screaming down Spokane Street.
Olaus would be astounded to see boarders and skiers flying through the air during Saturday’s fantastic "The Game" Rail Jam competition that takes place downtown right beside the very same post office that he knew. Saturday night have fun skiing and boarding under the lights at Red Resort’s Family Fun Night.
