The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, formally known as the Society for Preservation of Winter

Carnival, Saranac Lake, Inc., is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) organization of volunteers dedicated to planning

and presenting an annual mid-winter festival. This 10-day, communitywide event traces its roots to a

one-day Winter Carnival held in 1897 by the Pontiac Club. The Carnival honors its heritage every year by

building an Ice Palace from blocks of ice harvested from Lake Flower’s Pontiac Bay, where carnival

events have been traditionally held for generations. For more information, visit the Saranac Lake Winter

Carnival website at The 2024 Winter Carnival will take place

February 2-11,2024.
