President’s Welcome!

Welcome to the 66th Brattleboro Winter Carnival. As the 66th Winter Carnival President, it is my pleasure to share with you some of the highlights of our full slate of COVID friendly activities for 2022. We will be bringing back some of our traditional favorites that the committee has offered over the past 65 years. This includes everything from Sugar- on-Snow to The Ice Fishing Derby to the Jr. Olympics and much more. This year we have added some new winter fun whether it be teaming up with the Whetstone for a night of Music and BINGO or a Glow Light Skate at the Nelson Withington Skating Facility.

ARTFUL ICE SHANTIES Retreat Meadows

Saturday, February 19th - Sunday, February 27th 10:00 am - 4:00 pm Presented by the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center and Retreat Farm, the Artful Ice Shanties outdoor exhibit is a place-based celebration of artistic talent, creative ingenuity, and the rich history of ice fishing at the Retreat Meadows. The Artful Ice Shanties will be displayed in and around Farmhouse Square at Retreat Farm from Saturday, February 19th through Sunday, February 27th. Last winter, over 1,000 people attended our inaugural Artful Ice Shanties exhibit. They saw ice shanties shaped like a giant iridescent fish, a black dye with moon-shaped dots, a seascape with a three-dimensional octopus, and more. They hiked and snowshoed on the Retreat Farm trails, visited Carlos the ox and other animals, went cross-country skiing, and skated on the Retreat Meadows. As weather and COVID conditions permit, this second iteration of the exhibit will include more outdoor events, activities, demonstrations, and performances. Join us on Sunday, February 26th, at 2:00 pm for a wintry, wonderful outdoor Awards Ceremony where a panel of local judges will give out an array of awards for ice shanties with notably artistic, inventive, or silly qualities. ADMISSION: Free.


WINTER CARNIVAL SNOWMAN SCAVENGER HUNT Saturday, February 19th - Sunday, February 27th Walk about town and keep an eye out for the many Carnival Snowmen posted in storefront windows of participating businesses. From Wells Fountain on the north end of Main Street all the way down to the Brattleboro Food Coop you can spy the Snowman on display. Feel free to post how many you've found on the Winter Carnival Facebook page, and at the end of the week we will let you in on how many were hidden!
