The 2023 Winter Carnival Committee

67th Brattleboro Winter Carnival, 2023

Presidents Welcome

Welcome to the 67th Brattleboro Winter Carnival. As the 67th Winter Carnival President it is my pleasure to share with you some of the highlights of our full program offerings of indoor and outdoor activities for 2023. We will be bringing back some of our traditional favorites that the committee has offered over the past 66 years. This includes everything from Sugar-on-Snow, the Variety Show, the Chili Cook-Off, Pancake Breakfast, Indoor Fun Day at Brattleboro Area Middle School and much more. We will continue with some new winter fun we brought forward in 2022 by teaming up with the Whetstone for Charity BINGO, a Glow Light Skate at the Nelson Withington Skating Facility, Family BINGO, and activities sponsored by Brooks Memorial Library. Again, this year we focused on sponsoring family activities that can take place in and out of your home and throughout the community. Our hope is that you will gather your family and friends and come out and enjoy our events. Some highlights of this year’s Carnival include: The Variety Show at the Brattleboro Union High School Auditorium, Cross-Country Skiing/ Snowshoeing at the Brattleboro Outing Club, and Skiing & Snowboarding at Living Memorial Park. Also on the schedule will be Ice Skating at the Nelson Withington Skating Facility, attending the Chili Cook-Off at the Elks, enjoying the Movie Matinees at Latchis, going on a Scavenger Hunt in downtown Brattleboro to finding a snowman in the windows of local businesses or grabbing your crayons entering the coloring contest. Please join us at the Brattleboro Music Center for a new offering that will bring excitement to the whole family in a musical mystery tour at the BMC across from the Living Memorial Park. You can check out our website for a complete listing of our activities at www.brattleborowintercarnival.org or you can follow us on our Brattleboro Winter Carnival Facebook page. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the committee members who used their creative energies to come up with new programs and activities in these challenging times and to personally extend a special thank you to them for volunteering their time to bring these exciting family activities to the 2023 Winter Carnival.

A special thank goes out to all of our 2023 sponsors and event venues. Please find a complete listing of our sponsors on our website. We couldn’t do it without your support! I look forward to seeing all your creative postings on our Facebook page at Brattleboro Winter Carnival and all of you out and about as you enjoy this years’ events.

ARTFUL ICE SHANTIES

Retreat Meadows

Saturday, February 18th - Sunday, February 26th

10:00 am to 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.

This year, most of the shanties will be displayed on the Retreat Meadows ice, with an ice shanty “village” by the farmhouse at Retreat Farm. We’ll have free hot chocolate every day and some drop-in activities from Saturday, February 18th through Sunday, February 26th.

This is the third year for Artful Ice Shanties. In February 2021, over 1,000 people visited the exhibit, and in 2022, over 1,700 people attended. Past Artful Ice Shanties have included:

• Namaskônek, a shanty inspired by the Algonquin ancestors of the region

• A glass box that used recycled lenses to simulate the experience of the northern lights

• A shanty by third and fourth graders that displayed animals’ winter survival strategies

• An enormous black die with moon-shaped dots

• A seascape with a three-dimensional octopus

• A shanty shaped like Baba Yaga’s house

Join us on Saturday, February 25th 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.

LE PATIN LIBRE: CARTE BLANCHE

Presented By Next Stage Arts

Nelson Withington Skating Facility

Friday, February 17th

7:15 – 8:30 pm

Le Patin Libre is a contemporary ice-skating company from Montreal, originally founded in 2005 by ex-high-level figure skaters. They regrouped with the intention of transforming their athleticism into a means of free expression. Far from sparkles, stereotypes and champions’ demos, the creations of Le Patin Libre propose real works of art exploiting the amazing choreographic and theatrical potential of glide.

In Carte Blanche, Le Patin Libre’s founders share the essence of their contemporary skating: glide, virtuosity, freedom. With joyful authenticity and no frills, the revolutionary skating-artists combine excerpts of their most-acclaimed pieces and short pieces to create a festive, accessible and impressive entry-door to their new choreographic art form.

Tickets for the event can be purchased online at www.nextstagearts. org. The cost of a general admission ticket is $20.00 each, for more information email info@nextstagearts.org or call 802-451-0053.
