Snow Sculpting Zones

Various locations

This year at Winterloo we want to see all of the amazing snow creations that you can make. So we’ve designated three spaces in Uptown Waterloo as Community Snow Sculpting Zones. These zones will be open spaces where you can showcase your snow sculpting skills while expressing yourself through the magic of frozen water!

Community members are invited to bring tools from your home to make snowpeople, or other snow creations. Whatever you can imagine!

Once you’ve completed your snow sculptures, make sure you take us on social media with the hashtag #winterloo2021 so that we can see all of the amazing things you’ve created.

Snow Sculpting Zones

  • Waterloo Visitor and Heritage Information Centre (east and west side of the building) - Corner of Erb/Father David Bauer
  • Waterloo Park (base of PI hill) - along the Waterloo Park Central Promenade just south of the bridge
  • Waterloo Public Library – South/East side of the building

All three snow sculpting zones will remain open until January 31, 2021. Please respect other people’s creations when visiting the site.
