Just Because It's Winter Doesn't Mean We Can't Play Outside!

The Wisconsin Union's Winter Carnival is a long-standing tradition. The Wisconsin Union Directorate, Wisconsin Hoofers and other campus partners challenge you to embrace the cold and go play outside!

When you need to warm up a bit, head inside! There will be plenty of events and warm drinks to enjoy. 

This year, Winter Carnival Is 7 Days of fun!
