Select Nights this Holiday Season

Gather the whole family to make lifelong memories at Carowinds' WinterFest, the Carolinas’ most immersive holiday attraction. WinterFest boasts a sleigh-full of fun things to do for the holidays.

Celebrate the holidays at Carowinds with millions of lights, ice skating, family activities, live entertainment, specialty holiday comfort food, and select attractions.

Listen to favorite holiday tunes from crooning carolers and indulge in the smells from the sweet aromas of freshly baked treats. Find unique holiday gifts at the specialty shops, play holiday-themed games, and catch the season's best live shows. Help children write letters to Santa, and watch their eyes grow wide at the thousands of glimmering lights on the Carowinds Christmas tree, one of the largest and most magnificent in the area.

After an evening of FUN, get caught up in the merry procession of the nightly WinterFest Wonderland Parade with lavishly decorated floats, festive music, and brilliant performers.
