We can all agree that 2020 was one of the strangest and most difficult years of all time, but now that it is in the rearview mirror, it is time to focus on the future. After not being open all last year, we have just as much stored up energy as you and we are ready to put it all towards our 45th season! (Yes, we are still counting it as the 45th even though we skipped the 44th – otherwise, people 100 years from now will be really confused).
With that being said, we are ready to introduce the newest editions to Valleyfair. On your marks, get set, here comes 2021!
Grand Carnivale – July 24-August 8
We wanted so badly to bring you this incredible cultural experience in 2020, but life had other plans. Luckily, we are going to debut Grand Carnivale in 2021! Grand Carnivale is a larger-than-life cultural celebration with extravagant sights, pulsing rhythms, delicious tastes and sips, and traditions from around the globe. You’ve never seen Valleyfair like this!
Sometimes it’s the little things that can have the biggest impact on your experience at the park, and we are hoping you will love what we have done with a few of our restrooms during our extended off-season. You will not recognize the Front Gate and North Star bathrooms that received an HGTV worthy renovations.
Lakeshore Landing Event Space
The gift shop for Dinosaurs Alive is currently being renovated into Lakeshore Landing - the perfect place for your next family reunion, company retreat, or any other event you may want to organize. This spacious area can be designed to fit any gathering, meeting, or catering needs. Let our friendly and helpful event staff make your group's special day a great success without stress or worry.

High Roller Airtime Hills
High Roller's airtime hills are getting some tender loving care to give you that awesome floating feeling on your way back to the station!
New Front Gate Coke Refresh Station
The Coca-Cola Refresh station near the front gate was removed, and in its place, our team has built a larger and more efficient building.
New Corn Cart Building
The Corn Cart is no longer a cart because our foods team designed a new building specifically for this location. Once all construction is completed, guests will be able to watch kettle corn pop and ears of corn roast through giant glass windows.
