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 25th to January 28th, 2024! 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.
