We are busy planning for 2022, see what we did in 2021:

Snow sculpture is a perennial favourite at the Silver Skate Festival! Each yearteams of 2-3 artists demonstrate how to transform 8-ft high x 8-ft wide x 8-ft deep blocks of snow into magical creations. When they are finished, eight artworks create an ephemeral sculpture garden for the public to enjoy for the duration of the festival. 

The Waiward Snow Sculptures Garden will be up in Hawrelak Park from February 11th until Mother Nature says it's spring. We'd love for you to come take a peek at your leisure.
