Type of event:
The Snowcastle becomes a month long celebration of community spirit, collaboration, innovation in the arts, entertainment for young and old and where the spirit of winter wonderment from all our collective childhood reigns supreme.
A winter wonderland is created on Yellowknife Bay where the Snowking and his talented, hardy northern helpers brave -30 over the course of 2 months to build a huge castle made entirely of snow and ice.
On any given day, the Snowcastle might host a children's play, followed by an arts exhibit or a rock band, a film festival and finish the night off by transforming into a dance club.
The Festival is celebrating it's 22nd Year! We look forward to seeing you!
