Portland has everything. Food, Beer, Beauty, Diversity. The list goes on and on. It's one of the greatest cities in the World. One thing Portland has never had however is a killer winter festival. Well, that all changes this weekend with Carnaval Me. This is going to be the biggest and best celebration of winter anywhere in the USA. And it's only Year One!

 

 

 Carnaval Me is a three-day festival along Portland's historic waterfront on the Eastern Prom. Celebrate Maine’s bicentennial winter with our Bites & Brews igloo, ice sculptures, illumination art, and a Rail Jam by Sunday River.
