International teams of talented professional snow sculptors come to Navy Pier and Polk Bros Park to create masterpieces out of 10-foot blocks of man-made snow. The artists begin sculpting on Wednesday, but the free festival takes place on Saturday and Sunday. With fun activities for kids, a snow sculpting competition, nighttime illuminations, interactive snowboarding experience and more, come outside for the best snow day ever!
As a fun addition to this event, come see the Shedd Aquarium's beloved Magellanic Penquins each day from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. in the Family Pavilion!
All winners are announced at the awards ceremony February 7 at 6 p.m. in the Family Pavilion.
