The last Snow Festival in Nuuk was back in 2008. Since then a lot of people have requested the return of the festival to Nuuk, and now it is finally happening!

In 2019 from the 21st to the 24th of March 30 teams are to compete in two categories, Nonfigurative and Figurative, at the old harbour in Nuuk – SIKUKI. Each teams consists of four people and each team has their own 3x3x3 meter cube.

Nuuk Snow Festival was held for the first time in 1994. At that time it was not only the first in Nuuk, but the first in all of Greenland! The festival was initiated by the architectural firm Tegnestuen Nuuk A/S, who also planned the festival for a large part of the 15 years it was held in Nuuk. In a few years Nuuk Snow Festival grew from 21 teams in 1994 to 50 teams at the height of its success.

Nuuk Snow Festival gathered people from all kinds of backgrounds: public companies, educational institutions, private firms, families and friends. All gathered in teams to compete in the categories Nonfigurative and Figurative. Even people from all over the world came to Nuuk from countries like the US, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

Nuuk Snow Festival brought people together in teams, but also as visitors. The festival site was the ideal place to go, both for family trips and for the romantic first date. It is our goal to once again make Nuuk Snow Festival the place for everyone to have a good time, and we hope you will help us make the festival of 2019 a blast!
