The inaugural Carnaval Maine launched in 2020 but took last year off because of the pandemic. In 2022, Carnaval will be back and bigger than ever, 100 years after Portland celebrated its first winter festival.  The 10-day celebration kicks off with the Fire and Ice Gala. Guests will arrive by the Narrow Gauge Railway to the Eastern Promenade, where they will enjoy an evening of craft brews, cocktails, and wine paired with local cuisine.

“Our theme, Fire and Ice, evokes Portland’s phoenix, a symbol of perseverance, which seems fitting during these unprecedented times,” said Brian Corcoran, CEO and Founder of Shamrock Sports & Entertainment. “Just as they have many times before, our people have persevered through this pandemic, and will come together to showcase our award-winning culinary, arts and craft communities while delivering economic impact when the region needs it most.”
