Saint Paul Winter Carnival

Another great Twin Cities cold-weather event is the Saint Paul Winter Carnival! This massive winter celebration is a Minnesota staple and has been going strong since 1886, making it the oldest of its kind in the entire United States. The Saint Paul Winter Carnival was created initially as a protest against East Coast newspapers which called Minnesota too cold and unfit for human inhabitancy and has evolved into the great event you see today. Complete with organized winter runs, three large parades, the legendary Ice Palace, a Royal Coronation, and so much more, the carnival is packed with entertainment for everyone! The celebration is held throughout the last few weeks of January into February with most events taking place in downtown Saint Paul. Book your lovely Twin Cities accommodations with Minnestay and explore all that the Saint Paul Winter Carnival has to offer.
