Village of Lights: Winter Karneval

Lights on 7 days a week through February

FROSTY FUN ALL MONTH LONG!

Picture a stunning backdrop of half a million brilliant lights, majestic mountains frosted with snow and an enchanting Bavarian village filled with fun. Come join us this January for Leavenworth’s very first Winter Karneval as we honor a German tradition dating back to the thirteenth century, commonly referred to as ‘Fasching’. You can expect to see a blend of familiar activities, like ice carving and fireworks over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, along with new entertainment that will be spread out during the rest of the month, making Leavenworth the perfect winter destination all month long.

Our beautiful Christmas lights will be shining bright throughout the village and with the anticipation of snow, we will be teaming up with our local recreation partners on activities that highlight Leavenworth’s diverse outdoor scene. Chill Bavarian style this winter, our village teems with over 100 unique shops, eclectic dining for foodies, over 20 wine tasting rooms and wineries, and local Breweries, Cideries and Distilleries. Bavarian amenities like Alp Horn serenades, our World Famous Nutcracker Museum, and German Beer Gardens, are welcoming all winter. We hope to see you for a visit in January, there is no shortage of fun activities any day of the week!
