Recap of the 2024 Glenelm Snow Sculpture Challenge

Despite only having any real snow on the ground for just two weeks, neighbourhood snow enthusiasts came out in full force! Thanks to all 34 households who participated in our neighbourhood’s 7th annual Snow Sculpture Challenge, putting together nearly 40 works of snowy art!

A special mention goes out to two addresses from outside the neighbourhood: 773 Harbison Ave East, and 43-675 Talbot Ave. While we couldn’t include them on the map, we’re happy the people of East Elmwood were inspired to make something of their own – we invite you to go check them out!

We hope you had fun building them, and connecting with neighbours over the course of their construction. Now the fun continues as we enjoy looking at them on neighbourhood walks (better get out there soon – they’re calling for melting temperatures all week!) — our own little public art gallery (map of locations below)!

All those who registered their work of art on the website have been entered into a draw for dozens of awesome prizes, courtesy of our very generous local business sponsors.

To view the sculptures in person, see the map below for locations, or download a printable version here! We also spent the afternoon photographing all of them and those have been added to the gallery below for posterity.

Here are photos of all the sculptures we took on the day of the challenge (click on the photos to enlarge).

You can also check out the previous years’ events here: 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.

Thanks to our generous sponsors

This event could not happen without the generous support of our business neighbours. We would like to warmly thank them for their ongoing commitment to the community, and ask you to please show them your support in return.
