Dolomites Snow Sculptures Festival
January 11-13 and 16-18, 2023. Winter art in in San Vigilio and San Candido
In January 2023, the Dolomites Snow Sculptures Festival, this year in its 32nd edition, is held in Trentino Alto Adige,
The Dolomites Snow Sculptures Festival is organized in two January weekends in the municipalities of San Vigilio and San Candido in South Tyrol, at the foot of the Dolomites:
– from 11 to 13 January 2023 in San Vigilio
– from 16 to 18 January 2023 in San Candido
Over 30 artists, divided into 10 teams, give life to the festival in the most evocative corners of both locations where enormous cubes of pressed snow (3x3x3 m) are placed at the artists’ disposal. They are allowed to use a saw, and a shovel and they can use only water to solidify their artwork.
Snow sculptures must be completed within the three days of the event. Then it’s up to the visitors and the inhabitants to choose the best ones.
The venue is cunningly illuminated so the sculptures can be admired also at night. Sculptures are left there until spring thaw will melt them
