If you’re looking for a winter festival that involves more than just twinkling lights and hot chocolate, we've got just the thing. The annual Rossland Winter Carnival is coming back for its 121st year and no, that's not a typo. This event has been running since 1898 and it's only getting better! Dress in your best winter getup and watch freestyle snowboarders and bobsledders do their thing to the sound of live music.\nThe city of Rossland is a hidden gem in B.C. This otherwise sleepy winter town comes to life in the colder months. Of course, this historic carnival is what makes the town famous in B.C.\nThe Rossland Winter Carnival has been drawing tourists for over 120 years, and for good reason. During this event, the streets completely transform into a winter wonderland filled with every snowy activity imaginable.\nDuring the carnival, Rossland's streets double as a terrain park for skiers and snowboarders to show off their freestyle techniques.\nNo festival would be complete without food and drinks, and this one has entire beer gardens. It may get chilly in Rossland during the winter months, but it's nothing that spiked hot chocolate or beer can’t cure.\nThe carnival takes place over a four-day period, and you won't want to miss a moment. The people of Rossland know how to party and you're definitely invited.\nThis year's carnival takes place from January 23 to January 26, 2020, in the West Kootenay mountain town.\nThe star attraction is the bobsledding. Individual groups and businesses form the area make their own bobsleds and race them at intense speeds down a steep city block.\nView this post on Instagram Rossland Winter Carnival 🎡 Bobsled Race 2019.

From bathtubs to broken down snowmobiles, these bobsleds are far from professional, but they are hilarious to watch. Safety always comes first, though, and there's an EMT on standby just in case.\nView this post on Instagram 363 more days until we can do it all again. #niterider #bobsled #rosslandwintercarnival A post shared by George Hogarth (@georgehogarth) on Jan 28, 2019 at 2:23pm PST\nWhen you’re done there, head a couple of blocks down and watch super talented skiers and snowboarders take on a handmade park filled with jumps.\nView this post on Instagram Rossland Winter Carnival 2019 some photos from the rail jam today. #railjam #rossland #rosslandbc #old_fire_hall #rosslander #redmountain #kootenays #explorebc #wintercarnival #rosslandwintercarnival #blizzardmusicfestival A post shared by lawrence wright (@lawrencewrightphoto) on Jan 26, 2019 at 6:22pm PST\nAcross the way will be a massive beer garden filled with ice sculptures, warm cider, and beer.\nIf you get hungry there will be tons of street vendors to choose from.
