40 Winter Quotes To Get You In the Mood for Winter Celebrations

Last Updated on December 28, 2021

Summer festivities are fun, but winter festivals are lit. Every year, every winter time, different festivals are happening around the globe. The winter solstice is basically THE holiday season, as some of the most celebrated holidays and events in various cultures and religions happen at this time of the year. Among these events are winter festivals!

Here are some of the most popular festivities you might want to check out this year.


Carnevale Festival – Italy

The Carnevale Festival is one of the biggest and most popular winter festivals in the world. It is comprised of parades, public dances, private masquerade balls, entertainment shows and music events. The yearly winter festival in Venice begins 40 days before Easter and ends the day before Ash Wednesday.

An important part of the Carnevale Festival is the beautiful Venetian mask. The best mask is voted by a jury of renowned costume and fashion designers at the end of the celebration.


Sapporo Snow Festival – Japan

Freshly Fallen Snow

For seven days in February every year in Japan, the Sapporo Snow Festival happens. The festivity attracts not just the locals, but also tourists from all over the world. Each year, over 2 million people go to Sapporo to witness a huge variety of snow statues and ice sculptures displayed in the Odori Park, at the Community Dome Tsudome grounds, and the Susukino main street.


Fiesta Pescado Blanco – Montana

Montana’s yearly winter festivity, the Fiesta Pescado Blanco, is jam-packed with winter sports and activities like ski racing, ice hockey, ski parades and skijoring. This is also where the annual Penguin Plunge happens where people take a plunge in the frigid Whitefish Lake.

The festivity is also known as the Whitefish Winter Carnival since Fiesta Pescado Blanco is the Spanish translation of ‘white fish party’.


Quebec City’s Winter Carnival – Canada

Small Cabin in the Woods

Referred to as the largest winter festival in the world, the Quebec City’s Winter Carnival starts on the last week of January and ends in the middle of February. An average of $42 million is spent by visitors all over the world onthis event every year.

It’s the most famous of all festivities because of the vast variety of activities it offers like the 400-ft ice slide, snow rafting, winter camping, dog sled racing and so much more.


Altitude Festival – Austria

This unique festival offers the usual winter activity of snowboarding, but with a twist. It’s accompanied with comedy and music. The annual event – which started in 2008 in Meribel, France – is hosted by comedians Marcus Brigstocke and Andrew Maxwell. In 2015, the festivity moved to its current location in Mayrhofen, Austria.


Winterlude – Canada

Red Frosty Berries

Canada’s capital, Ontario, is the home of Winterlude, a paradise of ice sculptures and hot chocolate stands. The annual festivity begins on January 31st and ends on February 17th. The frozen Rideau Canal Skateway is the center of the celebration where a variety of activities take place.

It’s the home of the Beaver Cup Hockey Classic. Snow slides are available during daytime. At night, Canadian chefs and winemakers present their best Ontario produce in gastronomic, multi-core dinners.


Frozen Dead Guys Day – USA

This unique winter festival takes place in Colorado. The event is based on an old story about how a woman brought her grandfather to America. It’s been said that TrygveBauge, a Norwegian citizen, transported her already-deceased grandfather, BredoMorstol, to America using dry ice and liquid nitrogen.

In 1994, the people of Colorado discovered Morstol’s corpse well-preserved. That was when the Frozen Dead Guy festivity started. During the first full week of March, the people of Nederland, CO, entertain locals and tourists alike.

They have “frozen dead guy” themed events like corpse lookalike contests, slow-motion parades, snow sculpture competitions, coffin races and more.


Yukon Quest –  US to Canada

Child Playing in The Snow

Winter in Alaska is a hit, thanks to its annual Yukon Quest. Every February, the Yukon Quest Trail takes place where mushers and their sled dog teams participate in a 10 to 16-day trek (about 1,000 miles).

Their journey starts in Fairbank, Alaska and ends in Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. The trail follows historical dog sled routes like the Gold Rush and the Mail Delivery. The winner of the event gets a $35 prize.


Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival – South Korea

For the full month of January every year, an ice festival takes place in Hwacheon, a county in Gangwon province in South Korea. This place is known as the first region in Korea that freezes over during wintertime.

Its river is also the first to be covered with a thick layer of ice. Locals and tourists can try ice fishing using their bare hands during the festivities. An ice sculpture – which often takes 20 weeks to make – is also a festival highlight.

Take part of any of these festivals during the winter and let the cold never bother you, anyway! For more Elsa-sque winter quotes, read below:
