Sandpoint Idaho’s Annual Winter Carnival

Sandpoint’s Winter Carnival is coming up, February 14-23, 2014!

Still rockin’ our winters after 40 years!

Every year in the dead of winter, 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 … indoors and out.

We hope to see you here for the 40th annual Sandpoint Winter Carnival, Feb. 14-23, 2014!

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 2014 Winter Carnival events will include such favorites from past years as the very hot Cirque de Sandpoint, the K9 Keg Pull and Schweitzer’s Let It Glow! Finale, plus some other favorites including the Parade of Lights (back by popular demand) and the always-delicious Taste of Sandpoint. View all 2014 events>
