Ever been to Carnival? Take part in our very own take on the Latin and Caribbean party that millions flock to every year. We may not have the tropical weather, but we’ve got an entire town trying to beat cabin fever! Bonfires, live music, shopping, winter games- what’s not to love?

Friday Night
Bonfire at Baileys Harbor Rec Park
Join us out on Summit Rd to set the night on fire and kick off the weekend right. Come see the christmas lights lighting up the night sky! Food & Drinks will be for sale to benefit the Baileys Harbor Athletics Club.


Winter Games throughout town
Take a stroll through The Ridges Sanctuary’s snow covered trails. Build a snowcastle at Ridges Beach or Anclam Beach. Take part in the first Pond Hockey Tournament on Kangaroo Lake or test your snowmobile skills in our time trials and radar runs around the island.

6:30pm – Live Music by Unity at Maxwelton Braes Lodge & Max Supper Club
It is Bob Marley’s birthday weekend and we’ve got the best reggae band around playing the night away. Bring your friends, have a couple drinks, and don’t worry about driving! The Lodge is open so you can book your room and party all night.

Best Carnival Costume at Unity wins a prize package care of the BHCA. We want to see feathers, sequins, outrageousness of all kinds! Everyone loves a reason to get dressed up so let’s get into the Carnival Spirit!
