Nobody does winter like Saint Paul. Bundle up and embrace the season at a variety of fun-filled frozen events.
In 1885, an East Coast reporter described Saint Paul as “another Siberia, unfit for human habitation.” Rather than wallow in our cold misfortune, the people of Saint Paul decided to wear that designation as a badge of honor—the quote inspired the creation of the iconic Saint Paul Winter Carnival which is still celebrated in all of its frozen glory today.
Winter in Saint Paul really is something to see. In addition to the icy traditions of the outdoor Winter Carnival, strap on a pair of skates at our beautiful Wells Fargo WinterSkate rink the heart of downtown and immerse yourself in the winter wonderland of holiday lights in Rice Park.
