Stop by often during the first weekend (January 29-30) to watch the competition and contest sculptures take shape—and vote for your favorite around noon on Sunday! All sculptures are finished by the afternoon of Sunday, January 30. Finished sculptures are lit after dark and remain on display for the duration of Vulcan Snow Park—or until they collapse. (Sculptures are knocked down if they’re growing dangerously unstable, or may collapse on their own, so plan to visit them early!)

Sculptures on Display
​Exhibition sculpture – A team of professional snow artists create a giant sculpture in the weeks leading up to Vulcan Snow Park. Work may continue during the opening weekend. Whatever the subject matter, the resulting sculpture is always enormous and spectacular.
Minnesota State Snow Sculpting Competition entries – Starting from an 8′ x 8′ x 8′ block of compacted snow, each sculpture is created over the opening weekend by a three-person team using only hand tools.
Small-Block Snow Sculpting Contest entries – These smaller sculptures start from 4′ x 4′ x 6′ blocks of compacted snow and are created in just eight hours on the first Saturday by up to three team members using only hand tools.
Other sculptures – You may also see other sculptures around Vulcan Snow Park, such as those created by students from the Metro Deaf School.
