Vernon Winter Carnival

The 62nd Vernon Winter Carnival embraces and celebrates all things winter for two weeks, Feb. 4 to 13, 2022. Get ready to have a blast!


The whole town gets into the spirit of this 10-day carnival that marks its 62nd year. Going back to its roots, the festival will be themeless because it's all about celebrating the beauty and fun of winter.  People of all ages get into the spirit of the season to creatively celebrate more than 20  unique winter events, some spanning over consecutive days.

Join in on a parade, search for clues in the Downtown Vernon Gold Rush scavenger hunt, play in the Winter Playground, check out the Snow Sculpture Symposium at SilverStar, or taste test downtown's best chili at the chili cookoff.

All events will be held in accordance with current BC public health orders (Covid restrictions).
