Sandpoint Idaho’s Annual Winter Carnival

Sandpoint’s Winter Carnival is coming up, FEBRUARY 11-22, 2015!

Still rockin’ our winters after 41 years!

Every year in the dead of winter since 1973, Sandpoint, Idaho, cooks up a sure antidote to cabin fever. It’s the Sandpoint Winter Carnival, pure fun celebrating the best of the snowy season.

Don’t miss… one horse, one skier, one rope!

It’s Skijoring, a Scandinavian-inspired, centuries-old contest with horses and riders pulling skiers around a course at daredevil speeds. See website >

Plus much more!

Our 2015 Winter Carnival events includes such favorites from past years as the very hot Cirque de Sandpoint, the K9 Keg Pull and lots of events at Schweitzer, plus some other favorites including the Parade of Lights (back by popular demand) and the always-delicious Winter Bites (formerly known as the Taste of Sandpoint) gourmet tasting event.
