Vulcan Fun Day at Snow Park at the Fair

Vulcan Fun Day is a big day at the Snow Park! Bring your friends and family to play in the snow, zoom down the Giant Snow Slide, and enjoy these great activities:

  • Visits by the newly anointed Vulcan Krewe and Royal Family
    Stickers, buttons, and photo opportunities!
  • Fire truck rides – 11 am to 3 pm*
    Provided by the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Vulcans
  • Kids’ snow treasure hunt – 11 am to 3 pm*
    If they’re old enough to walk, kids can participate. Each kid is provided with a beach pail and shovel and turned loose to dig for treasure in a supervised snow area. The prizes are continually refreshed and range from candy and coins to small toys. The treasure hunt goes on until we run out of prizes.
  • People’s Choice sculpture voting – 11 am to 1:30 pm
    Have a favorite snow sculpture? This is the day to nominate that sculpture for an award! All visitors are encouraged to enter their vote for the Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition’s People’s Choice Award.
  • Snow Park Polar Plunge – 12 pm to 1:30 pm
    New for 2017! Watch as hearty fundraisers for Special Olympics Minnesota take the plunge. Learn more »
  • Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition awards ceremony – 2 pm
    Find out which teams will take home awards from the three-day Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition.

*Weather permitting. Cold weather isn’t an issue, but if it’s dangerously cold or very inclement, activities may be curtailed or canceled.

Thanks to generous sponsors, admission to the Snow Park is free. Free Fairgrounds street parking is also available. (You may need to park further away and walk a bit depending on the number of visitors when you get there.) Fairground facilities will not be open, but there are plenty of port-a-potties on site (including several extra-large ones for ease of changing out of snow gear).

Come join the party!
