Fireworks, parades, lip sync contests, food and chocolate and more! This year’s Cooperstown Winter Carnival will take place from Feb. 6 through Feb. 8.
The Carnival is a long-time traditional winter festival, began in 1967 with the intention of offering a variety of activities for residents and tourists to Cooperstown during the early winter month of February. The CWC brings people out into the cold and gives them a reason to celebrate with their friends, neighbors, and visitors. Each year the CWC creates new and exciting events, while bringing the same traditions back that people have come to expect.
