Spirits of Carnival Annual Fundraiser

While the Saint Paul Winter Carnival may have ended in February, you can still enjoy the Saint Paul Winter Carnival’s activities year-round. The Spirits of Carnival is one such event.

This annual event brings friends and family together for an evening of fun that includes: samples from local restaurants, breweries, wineries and distilleries; a silent and a live auction; raffle opportunities & much more!

All proceeds from this fundraiser benefit the Saint Paul Festival & Heritage Foundation and bring plans for the Saint Paul Winter Carnival and Cinco de Mayo – West Side Saint Paul to life.
