Support Winter Carnival

Winter Carnival is one of the oldest and most celebrated events of the Keweenaw. Originally, it began as a one night, spur of the moment "Ice Carnival" back in 1922. Blue Key began to manage the event in 1934 and transformed it into the celebration we have all come to know and love. We were not able to do this alone. We have had your help throughout the years.

We humbly ask that you would continue your patronage in Winter Carnival. If you have not been a donor or sponsor before, there are so many ways you can help. Winter Carnival helps the community and impacts you.

How to donate?

We accept donations in several ways.

  • Monetary donations can be made through our website, mailed to our office, or collected by a Blue Key member. Physical donations such as gift cards, hotel stays, free rentals, etc. should be made by contacting the Blue Key office directly.
