Upcoming Event: St Paul's Winter Carnival- Ice & Snow Sculpture Park

Drive-Thru Ice & Snow Sculpture Park

Combining two signature Winter Carnival events – the Ice Carving Competition and the Snow Sculpture Contest – this Drive-Thru Ice & Snow Sculpture Park, presented by White Bear Mitsubishi, will take place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds each day of the Carnival, giving you ample opportunities to enjoy the winter creations!

Your vehicle pass includes a UCare or Xcel Energy Swag Bag filled with goodies plus chance to win prizes through ‘I Spy’ BINGO along the way! Through the Winter Carnival app*, you’ll be able to participate in Winter Carnival Trivia, presented by Securian Financial, and Ice Your Vote by voting for your favorite sculptures as you view dozens of snow and ice masterpieces sculpted by local artisans, courtesy of Soapy Joe’s Car Wash.

As in years past, the Vulcans will manage the snow sculptures, courtesy of City, County Credit Union and their team of volunteers. On select days, you will also get to meet members of the Vulcan Krewe, the Winter Carnival Royal Family and the Klondike Kates!
