PINEDALE, Wyo. — Main Street Pinedale is gearing up for its Annual Pinedale Winter Carnival. A full schedule of events is planned for this weekend, Feb. 12-13, 2022.
The annual event kicks off on Saturday at 9 a.m. with Skijoring at the Pinedale Rodeo Grounds. Skijoring will be followed by the Cardboard Classic at 2 p.m. at the Burzlander Sledding Hill. Snow Ball Dance from 7 to 10:30 p.m. at the Wind River Brew Pub will feature the Columbia Jones Band.
A kids Snowcross Race will be held on Sunday after Skijoring at the Pinedale Rodeo Grounds. The 2022 Winter Carnival will conclude with an awards ceremony at 6 p.m. at Stockman’s Saloon.
The Pinedale Winter Carnival is Main Street Pinedale’s big fundraiser for the year and is a way to encourage people to get outside in the middle of February to have some fun with their friends and family and to help give downtown businesses a little economic boost.
Main Street Pinedale is a nonprofit organization that works with numerous community members and partners to help pull off this event. The group is made up of an all-volunteer board. The money raised during the Winter Carnival goes directly back into the community in the form of business façade grants, economic development, downtown beautification, and historic preservation.
