International Snow Sculpting Symposium

Professional sculptors from the area and around the world come to Ely to participate in a snow (not ice) sculpting symposium (not a competition). 8′ and 12′ blocks are carved into beautiful works of art in Whiteside Park.  The carvers begin carving on Thursday and wrap up by Sunday morning. The sculptures are glorious in the sunshine as well as by night lit by ice candles.  Come walk through the park while the carving is underway and watch art being created!
