Affectionately known as "Snowball," the Dorset Snowball Winter Carnival is one of the longest-running and best indoor/outdoor winter carnivals in Ontario.

Snowball was started by the volunteer Committee back in 1991 as a community event and fundraiser for the Recreation Centre and has grown to a much-loved and fiercely boasted annual event full of games, music, interactive activities and of course - food!

Snowball takes place on the 3rd weekend of February every year and has grown from a local event into a festival that’s attended by people from all over Ontario.
