As part of the event programming during the first WinterFest at Prince Arthur's Landing (on Family Day), the City hosted a snow sculpture symposium for local and regionally based snow carvers. Four teams were selected by open competition and were each assigned an 8'x8'x8' block of snow. The sculptures attracted thousands of visitors, particularly families with young children.

WinterFest is an annual event in the City. Interested snow or ice carvers 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.
