Winter Carnival

Begun in 1911, Dartmouth's Winter Carnival celebrates the beauty of the winter season in the Upper Valley and the achievements of Dartmouth's many winter sports teams.

Dartmouth's 111th Winter Carnival, "Level-Up: Carnival Rebooted" will take place Feb. 5-21. The extended schedule will allow us to integrate more opportunities for smaller groups to participate in activities in a socially-distanced and capacity-limited way. The Winter Carnival Council plans to host a variety of in-person* and virtual programs to reach students on campus and studying remotely this term. If your student organization or College department is interested in sponsoring or co-sponsoring a program as part of Winter Carnival, please reach out via

*Please note that due to campus COVID policies, all in-person on campus activities are limited to students with approved on-campus access for the term. Unfortunately no guests will be able to attend or visit for Carnival.

Schedule of Events

From humble beginnings as a weekend of winter sporting, Carnival has evolved into a three-day festival of events across campus.
