Winter Carnival 2022 Announcement

 Winter Carnival 2022 Announcement

We are excited to announce the return of the Olaus Jeldness Rossland Winter Carnival, to be held the weekend of January 28th to January 30th, 2022!

Community and family-oriented activities will decorate this historical weekend, with lots of reasons and ways to celebrate! RED Mountain’s famous Rail Jam, ice sculptures, snow slides, tobogganing, skating, fire spinners, local business specials, and more!

With the current Public Health Order in place, and issues and concerns related to the rising cases of COVID-19 in our community and beyond - the Carnival will not be hosting large-participation or spectator-oriented events. Event feasibility is currently being evaluated on a case-by-case basis; unfortunately, certain events will not be able to operate safely. This currently includes the cancellation of the Sonny Samuelson Bobsled Race, the Variety Show, the Parade, the Olaus Ice Palace Beer Garden and Blizzard Fest. Current ticket holders for Blizzard Fest will have their tickets refunded.

We look forward to a full schedule return in 2023! In the meantime, the 2022 Events and Activities schedule will be announced shortly through the website, Facebook and Bhubble. Also keep an eye out for the official 2022 Rossland Winter Carnival poster around town featuring the artwork of our contest winner!

We will also be recruiting for several weekend volunteer positions to support the planned activities. Volunteers will be required to be fully vaccinated and will receive an exclusive thank-you gift! If you are interested in lending support to our volunteer Committee to ensure the success of the weekend, reach out to volunteers@rosslandwintercarnival.com for more information. 

If you are a local business interested in promoting Carnival Weekend specials through our Event Schedule, please reach out to the Committee asap info@rosslandwintercarnival.com.

Thank you to the City of Rossland, Red Mountain Resort, our sponsors, and our event and Committee volunteers for your continued support and hard work!
