Winterfest Debuts on November 24th
Carowinds comes alive with holiday spirit during WinterFest. Friends and families are treated to an ultimate Christmas event 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 shines bright with over 5 million shimmering lights, a 70-foot tree and lavish displays. Live shows and strolling performers delight guests and spread Christmas cheer for all to hear. Festive fun and hands-on Christmas activities are located throughout the park, and sweet aromas from special holiday dishes and desserts fill the midways. Plus, a selection of your favorite rides will be open to complete your night of memory making.
In 2019, Carowinds WinterFest debuts an all-new way to experience the holidays on a grand scale with its nightly Wonderland Parade. This larger-than-life holiday event showcases dazzling lights, extravagant floats, talented performers and a special appearance by Santa Claus.
