Next February, Holyoke will host its Forth Annual Winter Carnival! It will be a citywide celebration bringing together diverse community and arts groups for a 10 day long carnival of winter-themed festivities. New community traditions will once again be featured with commitment from dedicated volunteers, and the support of the City of Holyoke.

The dates for the upcoming Carnival will be Friday February 6 to Sunday February 15, 2015.  Spotlight will be on Holyoke for 10 days as it celebrates winter with great events happening all across our Community.
