The biggest winter festival in Western Canada has a big history, experienced by Vernon locals and visitors alike over the last century and a quarter.

Let these cool winter events cure your cabin fever, as you embrace sub-zero temperatures and don your coziest thermal underthings to gather outdoors in relative safety.

Vernon’s Winter Carnival celebrates 62 years with an outdoor-focused fest featuring a massive winter playground for all ages, snowmobiling, snow sculpture and more.

There’s reason to dance (or twirl on your skates) once again as a new festival arises out of the depths of winter.

It's below zero and the snow is blustering.
