Carowinds Seasons of Fun
Mark your calendars for four seasons of AMAZING with Carowinds’ Seasons of Fun! From the first roller coaster screams in March 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 concerts, live shows, food and drink events, and one-of-a-kind Charlotte events to enjoy. With new AMAZING always popping up, no two visits to Carowinds are alike. Come visit us during all four Seasons of Fun!
Summer is full-on AMAZING all day and into the night. In June and July, celebrate the world on a grand scale at Grand Carnivale, our larger-than-life event of extravagant sights, pulsing rhythms, delicious tastes and sips, parades and fun traditions from around the globe. Later in the summer, kick up your heels or just kick back and relax at our Carolina Summer Nights block party. 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.
