Legend Character Applications

Want to be a part of the Winter Carnival legend? Apply to be a part of the magic and share the story of Saint Paul with Minnesotans and visitors alike through one of the many royalty positions available each year.

Festival leaders, including the Winter Carnival Royal Family, are volunteers who are sponsored by and represent Saint Paul businesses. Volunteers are chosen for leadership skills, affiliation with a local business, and commitment to the City of Saint Paul. In addition to participating in Winter Carnival traditions (i.e., coronation, parades, overthrow of King Boreas) during the festival period, they make over 400 appearances throughout the year at local, regional, and national festivals, nursing homes, schools, and hospitals on behalf of the Winter Carnival and City of Saint Paul.

Leadership opportunities connect these festival ambassadors to Saint Paul and other communities around the region. The leaders effect change and foster pride in many communities through fun and educational engagement with residents from all walks of life. During the year, volunteers gain new skills, make connections, and promote pride in Saint Paul and communities they visit.
