Thank you to all sponsors for making the dream of Sioux Falls Winter Carnival a reality and for creating events to bring everyone out of winter hibernation for a great time! Over the course of nine days, Winter Carnival will provide welcomed social relief, countless activities for individuals of all ages and remind us all to embrace this beautiful season.

Sponsor support is vital to the success of this first time event. The events are coordinated by the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire and proceeds from events will benefit the children and youth served by this valuable mission. The excitement of the community is overwhelming and the exposure of supporters will be tremendous.
