The 2024 Winter Carnival

The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival has been a tradition since 1897, and is one of the oldest winter carnivals in the United States. We are proud to be part of this long-standing tradition and to be able to share it with the world.

Our mission is to preserve the legacy of Saranac Lake and to ensure that the tradition of the winter carnival continues for generations to come.

Get ready for a scary good time, because this year’s theme is “Creepy Carnival”!
