We are honored to be a sponsor for the World Snow Sculpting Championship for the 4th year in a row! Teams from around the world will travel to Stillwater, Minnesota to create amazing snow sculptures while competing for prize money and the title of the World Champion.
Stillwater, Minnesota, is powered by small businesses with big hearts. In 2020, when busy little Main Street came to a startling halt due to the COVID pandemic, the community feared for the future of the bustling tourist town. Led by the Chamber of Commerce, City of Stillwater, Discover Stillwater and locals, the Wintertime in Stillwater movement was created.
The community worked together to find ideas and inspiration that could save struggling businesses and provide long-term success during the cold winter months. Stillwater, a haven
for the arts, seemed like a perfect fit for a snow sculpting event. Upon further investigation, the organizers learned about Winter Fun, a snow sculpting organization. Winter Fun was searching for the right host for a World Competition and found Stillwater to be the perfect spot for the inaugural event! Once again, the strength of this small town showed up, and thousands of dollars of in-kind and cash donations poured in from local businesses
to support the launch of the most incredible wintertime event. More than 40,000 visitors flooded the streets to see the sculptures, eat at restaurants and shop at the boutiques.
The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in partnership with Discover Stillwater, the Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and the City of Stillwater, is honored to host the third-annual 2024 World Snow Sculpting Championship Competition sanctioned by the Association Internationale de Sculpture sur Neige et Clace based in Finland. Teams from around the world travel to Stillwater to create amazing snow sculptures while competing for prize money and the title of World Champion. This is a judged event and includes social events, activities, ceremonies, the people’s choice award and fun for the whole family!
Stillwater is excited for another year of partnership, fun, community and a little competition!
