Keystone’s Winter Carnival

November 27, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:15 pm


Keystone’s Welcome Winter Carnival & Holiday Tree Lighting! That time of year has arrived when snowflakes gather on your nose and eyelashes.

Gather the whole family and find your way to River Run Village at Keystone Resort, where the elves will be welcoming the best time of the year. Keystone’s Winter Carnival is a spectacle of jugglers and stilt walkers capped off with the lighting of the River Run holiday tree.

Sip some cocoa, delight in a sugar cookie, and catch a glimpse of the big guy in the red suit. Make a wish (okay, we know it’s for powder days) and celebrate the season with us at Keystone. Let’s welcome winter with the entire family on Saturday, November 27th.

Kiddos – explore River Run Village transformed into the North Pole. Parents can peruse Warren Station and purchase “Welcome Winter” hot toddies, other cocktails, or a beer before heading out to wander through the village using the Welcome Winter map that will guide you to all of the must-see stops. 

Craft your letter and trek to Santa’s mailbox, where you can send it on its way to the North Pole. Daily pickup from our local reindeers ensures Santa won’t miss your list. Or tell him you wish in person. Santa will be in the village available for a picture and a quick chat. Holiday carolers will be singing their way through River Run. Be sure to stop and sing along with them. The snow queen and her juggling elves will wonder the village, and if you want to try your hand at some tossing, and balancing, find your opportunity at their tent! The DIY holiday ornament kits will be ready for pickup, so grab those before you leave the village. Gather the whole family in the River Run Plaza to enjoy the lighting of the holiday tree. Where young and old, small and tall, will join together to welcome the winter holiday season.
