Gather the whole family to make lifelong memories at Carowinds' WinterFest, the area's most immersive holiday attraction with a sleigh-full of fun things to do for Christmas. Listen to favorite tunes crooned by carolers and smell sweet aromas of freshly baked treats. Find unique gifts at our specialty shops, play holiday-themed games and catch the season's best live shows. Help little ones scribble letters to Santa and watch their eyes grow wide at the thousands of glimmering, shimmering lights on our Christmas tree, one of the largest and most magnificent in the area. Get caught up in the merry procession of our nightly Wonderland Parade with lavishly decorated floats, lively music, and brilliant performers. And that's just the tip of the icicle.

Want to turn your WinterFest trip into an AMAZING holiday getaway? Stay where you play at our onsite hotel, SpringHill by Marriott Charlotte at Carowinds.
