2015 Winterfest Snow Sculptures

As part of the event programming during WinterFest (Family Day), Prince Arthur's Landing was filled with snow carvings created by local and regionally based snow carvers. The theme of the competition was "Fantasy and Fairy Tales." 

WinterFest is an annual event and snow sculptures are selected by open competition. Artists who are interested in producing a carving are encouraged to check the open call to artists page and to sign up for the City's email notification list for public art competitions. Both new and experienced carving teams are welcome.

In 2015 the number of carving teams doubled!
