91st Annual Winter Carnival

Continuing the tradition of the oldest student-run Winter Carnival in the nation

The 91st Annual Middlebury College Winter Carnival will be held from February 20-23, 2014.

For the last 90 years the students of Middlebury have gathered in the cold of winter for three days of fun, frolic and snow! Join the festivities at the bonfire, fireworks, snow sculptures, ice show, comedy club and the carnival ball. And, of course, make sure to get up to the mountain to cheer on Midd’s skiers. Go Panthers! 

Winter Carnival is organized by the Middlebury College Activities Board, the five Commons Councils, and the Winter Carnival Sports Board.
