Sapporo Snow Festival 2020

Dates: Tue, 4 Feb 2020 – Tue, 11 Feb 2020

The Sapporo Snow Festival takes place every year for a week in February across three main sites: Odori Park, Tsudome and Susukino. As the name implies, this festival is all about snow and ice sculptures.

The festival’s main site is Odori Park. Here, you’ll find most of the snow and ice sculptures, as well as plenty of warm drinks and food choices. The ice sculptures can be over 15 meters tall and 25 meters wide.

The second-largest site is Tsudome, which includes a variety of snowy activities as well as snow slides, snow rafting and family-oriented diversions and is open from January 31st. Although the Susukino site is the smallest, it features about 100 ice sculptures and is the location of the Ice Sculpture Contest.

The snow festival attracts two million people every year. The entry is free.
