The 2019 Saint Paul Winter Carnival buttons were unveiled December 1, 2018, at Stacked Deck Brewing Co. in Saint Paul.
Minnesota-based artist John Kocon created the series of four buttons depicting the fabled treasure hunt for the medallion, ice skaters gliding around the rink outside of the Landmark Center, King Boreas and Vulcanus Rex racing each other on sleds, and the Royal Family posing with the Vulcans.
Every button purchase includes a registration form to enter the 2019 Pioneer Press Treasure Hunt with the opportunity to win up to $10,000. In order to win the full $10,000, treasure hunters must find and turn in the medallion, register the 2019 Saint Paul Winter Carnival button, and clip and save the daily clues in the Pioneer Press.
Other prizes include $1,000 cash; tickets to the Minnesota Wild, St. Paul Saints, and Science Museum of Minnesota; a Vulcan fire truck ride for 20; a chance to feed the giraffes at Como Zoo; and so much more!
Button sales remain the largest annual fundraiser for the Saint Paul Festival and Heritage Foundation, which proudly produces the Saint Paul Winter Carnival and Cinco de Mayo Festival- West Saint Paul. Single buttons are for sale for $5, while the 4-button value pack retails for $19. Purchase your 2019 Saint Paul Winter Carnival buttons in our online store OR at participating metro Cub foods and Speedway locations.
