Visit the grand opening of the Bartz Snow Sculpture on January 19th to see their amazing and gigantic design!
As of February 1, 2024, this weekend will be the last Bartz Snow Sculpture Events for the season. February 2- 4, you can “feed” the Sparky sculpture snowballs, buy Bartz gear and watch the sculpture be demolished! Check out their Facebook event for the latest updates.
Mother Nature and a crazy amount of creativity usually make a great team in New Brighton. The Bartz family has been creating large snow sculptures in their front yard since 2012.
These sculptures aren’t just large, they are gigantic! When I say “usually” make a great team, the recent warm weather and lack of snow have made things difficult!
The GRAND Opening: Bartz Snow Sculpture event usually takes place January 1st. This year it’s been very delayed due to the lack of snow. In fact, they’ve had to make their own snow this year and still delay the opening by a few extra days!
The sculpture used to be built in their front yard in New Brighton, but the creations have gotten too big for that! This year it’s being held at the Brightwood Hills Golf Course in New Brighton. It’s open every day from 8am- 10pm. There will also be food trucks, other vendors and events every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
There’s no admission to view the sculpture, however the family appreciates donations. Each year the money raised goes towards clean water through the organization One Day’s Wages.
