When the light returns and the cold is biting at your skin, the people of Kiruna celebrate the snow and the winter with the Kiruna Snow Festival. This winter festival has been held during the last weekend of January, in the middle of the Kiruna city center, since 1986. And, as always, the festival is full of activities for all ages.

Kiruna Snow Festival might possibly be Europe’s most cozy snow festival. Held beneath the glittering northern lights, 140 kilometers above the Arctic Circle. During the Snow festival you will be able to take part in the rich culture Kiruna has to offer. With everything from the snow blower world championships, painting exhibitions, dog sledding, live music performances and a kid’s playground designed by snow.

But the main event of the festival is undoubtedly the Kiruna International Snow Sculpture Competition. A world class competition which attracts the best artist from all over the world.

The Snow festival is organized annually in central Kiruna by the local music organization Tusen Toner.
