Winterfest at Carowinds


Come for the sights, sounds and festive fun of the holiday season during WinterFest. This all-new event is packed with holiday spirit and unique experiences for friends and families to enjoy. Experience Carowinds like never before and become immersed in the season’s spirit with a grand display of holiday lighting, festive décor, live entertainment and fanciful experiences, including up to 16 of your favorite rides.

What’s the holiday season without the food? The Carowinds culinary team has you covered. Our executive chef has thoughtfully crafted a holiday style menu with special dining locations and food offerings throughout the park. Treat yourself to a hearty helping of smoked turkey, carved hams and traditional fixings; or, try our homemade hot chocolate and holiday desserts that will leave you with dreams of sugar plum fairies.

From millions of shimmering lights and hands-on activities to arts-and-crafts and live shows, WinterFest will be the grandest holiday event in the Carolinas!
