New England Winter Carnivals and Winter Festivals

In parts of New England winter is the longest season. While we know that winter is technically three months everywhere, in parts of New England, especially Northern New England, winter weather starts well before the winter solstice and lasts well after the spring equinox. Over the years hearty New Englanders have come to celebrate the long nights, cold temperatures, and snow that the season brings. Winter is not a season to escape. It is a season to embrace! What better way to celebrate than with a carnival or festival?

There are winter carnivals and / or festivals in all of the six New England states as residents of the region come up with new and creative ways to celebrate winter. What we list here are those carnivals and festivals that are clearly annual events.

So raise a glass of mulled wine to winter and make sure to catch one or more of these fun-filled festivals.
