Snow Park at the Fair Amateur Snow Sculpting Contest

Saturday, Jan 28 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Snow Park at the Fair Amateur Snow Sculpting Contest

Introduced for 2017, the Snow Park at the Fair Amateur Snow Sculpting Contest challenges three-member teams from throughout Minnesota to transform 4′ x 4′ x 6′ blocks of compacted snow into works of art in just eight hours. The winning team receives the opportunity to enter the following year’s Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition for free.

Visitors are encouraged to come watch as sculptures take shape. Winners will be announced around 4:30 pm.

Finished sculptures can be viewed through Sunday, February 5. Sculptures are knocked down if they’re growing dangerously unstable, or may collapse on their own, so plan to visit them earlier in the week!

Schedule:

  • Contest:
    Saturday, Jan 28 – 8 am to 4 pm (winners announced around 4:30 pm)
  • Snow sculpture viewing:
    Friday, Jan 27 through Sunday, Feb 5 – 9 am to 10 pm
