The first Cooperstown Winter Carnival began back in 1967 as a fun way to combat those winter blues and celebrate all that winter has to offer in our beautiful Central New York area and has been an annual family favorite event ever since.

This year's Winter Carnival will take place February 5th through the 7th and is centered in Cooperstown.  There are a wide variety of fun activities throughout the course of these three days: everything from a Barvarian beer party to the formal Susquehanna Ball to a snow sculpture contest, a pancake breakfast, and plenty of musical entertainment.  There's more to do than you can shake a stick at no matter your tastes. Plan ahead and check out the full schedule of events at
