Carowinds Seasons of Fun
Mark your calendars for AMAZING at Carowinds! From the first roller coaster screams of the season to the crooning of “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve, Carowinds always serves up fantastic things to do in Charlotte, right on the Carolina state line. What’s more, sprinkled in throughout the year are one-of-a-kind Charlotte events and experiences to enjoy. Come and visit us all season because no two visits are alike here at Carowinds!
Spring into the 2020 season at Carowinds! Enjoy the first thrills of the year with our world-class selection of rides and attractions. From roller coasters to Camp Snoopy, there is something for the entire family. Don’t forget about the AMAZING dining experiences you'll find around every corner. Carowinds has FUN for everyone!
Summer is full-on AMAZING all day and into the night. Throughout the summer you’ll find a full agenda of world-class shows, scrumptious cuisine, and all the splashtastic fun you can handle at Carolina Harbor.
From September through the end of October, it’s all things fall, y’all! Great Pumpkin Fest entertains little ghosts, goblins and their families all day long with games, activities and a just speck of spooky. At night, Carowinds transforms into SCarowinds with all of your worst fears crammed into one place. The Carolinas’ largest Halloween event turns 20 this year, so brace yourself for a new concoction of dark insanity you never dreamed possible – even in your worst nightmares. Then, shake it off and come back in November for our PEANUTS™ Celebration where you can step right into the comic strips with Snoopy and the whole gang.
Winter’s chill brings the warmth of beloved family traditions at Carowinds. When November winds down, get into the Christmas spirit at WinterFest, the area’s most immersive holiday attraction. A sleigh-full of fun awaits with fanciful experiences, extravagant holiday décor, gourmet treats, our Wonderland Parade and so much more. On December 31, bid a fond farewell to last year and a hearty hello to the new year at New Year's Eve at WinterFest, one of the region’s largest family-friendly celebrations.
