Carowinds will come alive with holiday spirit during the all-new seasonal event, WinterFest. Friends and families will be treated to an ultimate holiday celebration as we magically transform our park into a winter wonderland - full of enchantment, cheer and classic family fun.

WinterFest is packed with all the sights, sounds, food and experiences of the holiday season. The state line will shine bright with over 5 million shimmering lights, a 70-foot tree and lavish displays. Live shows and strolling performers will be delighting guests and spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear. Festive fun and hands-on holiday activities will be located throughout the park, and sweet aromas from special holiday dishes and desserts will fill the midways. Plus, there will be up to 16 rides open to complete your night of memory making.
