Sip & Savor: The Best of the Twin Cities
Save the date: October 5 - 8th, 2020! Our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year, Sip & Savor: Best of the Twin Cities, is going virtual. We'll spend one night "Sipping," the other night "Savoring" and the rest of the week winning big! See details below.
Since 1886, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival has taken great pride in celebrating Saint Paul's unique history and the traditions that connect our community. In 2021, we will celebrate our 135th Anniversary, and we remain committed to creating meaningful experiences, providing educational opportunities, and celebrating our heritage at little to no cost for all. We need your help as we move forward into this special anniversary. The 135th Winter Carnival will not happen without the support of our biggest fundraiser, Sip & Savor. Join us October 5 - 8th as we have some fun, while supporting an amazing cause!
