Winter Carnival Headquarters

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Headquarters opens for the season on February 2 at the ROOST office at 193 River Street. The headquarters offers a gift shop, maps and information about the various events of the 10-day festival, and serves as a central planning resource for visitors and residents. The headquarters will be open from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on February 2─11.

Headquarters will offer a variety of logo items for sale including shirts, hats, balsam pillows, magnets, beverage glasses and more. Videos will be featured on screen for people to learn about carnival and local lore. Winter Carnival buttons and posters designed by famous "Doonesbury" cartoonist, Garry Trudeau, from this year and previous years will be available as well. For those who enjoy carnival history, there will be a display of the complete button collection including pre-Trudeau buttons. All proceeds from sales benefit the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival.

"We're grateful to ROOST for letting the Winter Carnival Committee use their building for our Headquarters. It's in a great location nearby the Ice Palace," said Headquarters Manager Jan Hesbon, who assists visitors in planning their Winter Carnival itinerary.

World Premiere of 'Ice Palace, A Love Letter' Movie
2019-10-08 - During the 2016 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival, New York City Filmmaker Mark Burns came to Saranac Lake to capture the process from start to finish of what it takes to make the carnival happen. That year, the weather gave us many challenges, and Mark's camera caught all the drama. We're excited that Mark’s film, 'Ice Palace, A Love Letter', will have its world premiere at the Lake Placid Film Festival on October 27, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
