Pinedale Winter Carnival Feb 15-18
by Main Street Pinedale
February 1, 2019
Main Street Pinedale is gearing up for our 4th Annual Pinedale Winter Carnival and we have a full schedule of events planned for President’s Day Weekend - February 15th-18th, with some exciting new changes this year!
Our biggest changes include the venue change of the Cardboard Classic to the Burzlander Park Town Sledding Hill (the Town Sledding Hill) with the race kicking-off at noon on Saturday the 16th – a decision that allows Main Street Pinedale, as a non-profit organization, to honor our mission of "cultivating civic pride by collaborating with businesses, organizations, and community members to foster a vibrant downtown." We have partnered with the Town of Pinedale to help improve the sledding hill and plan on having it groomed to be as fast as we can make it!
We have also partnered this year with Skijor USA to have a sanctioned 2-day Skijoring event on both Sunday the 17th and Monday the 18th. Both events will have a full line-up of food and beverage vendors for spectators and participants to enjoy.
We have also brought back some of the other crowd favorites, which include the popular Pancake Breakfast which will be held hosted this year by St. Andrew’s in the Pine’s Episcopal Church by donation, the Kids Sno-Cross Race hosted by the Snow Explorer’s & Altitude Off Road, the Snow-Ball with LIVE music from Timmy the Teeth and his full band, and the crowing of this year’s Snow King & Queen hosted by the Wind River Brewing Company, the Yukon Cornhole Tournament hosted by the World Famous Corral Bar, and there will also be an Adult Co-Ed Hockey Tournament all weekend at the Sublette County Ice Arena.
The Pinedale Winter Carnival is Main Street Pinedale’s big fundraiser for the year and is a way to encourage people to get outside in the middle of February to have some fun with their friends and family and to help give downtown businesses a little economic boost.
Main Street Pinedale is a non-profit organization that works with numerous community members and partners to help pull off this event and we strive each year to make it better than the last. We are made up of an all-volunteer board and have spent countless hours working hard to bring all the moving pieces of this large event together. The money raised during the Winter Carnival goes directly back into the community in the form of business façade grants, economic development, downtown beautification, and historic preservation.
