Saint Paul Winter Carnival Ice Carvings
Thursday, Jan 25 - Saturday, Feb 10
In progress and finished carvings may be viewed throughout the Winter Carnival.
This signature Winter Carnival event returns as blocks of ice are transformed into beautiful masterpieces. Endless photo opportunities are available in Rice Park during the competition, as well as with the completed creations.
Both team and individual ice carving competitions are guided by a strict set of rules, requiring artists to utilize their best creative thinking. Additionally, competitor’s sculptures must be consistent with a sketch that was proposed and selected by the Selection Committee.
The final designs can be viewed throughout Rice Park during the 17 days of Carnival.
