    About Snowfest

    Collier County Parks & Recreation Department has sponsored Snowfest to the public since 1985. Snowfest is one of Collier County Parks & Recreation Division’s signature events, and the event was established with the concept of giving the community the thrill of getting to play in snow in 80-degree weather. Starting out with only 5 tons of snow and a few hundred people, the festival has grown to become Collier County’s largest community event, attracting thousands of people.

    Snowfest has many attractions, but the leading attraction is the 100 tons of snow. 1200 blocks of ice are trucked in and put through an ice chipper, which is magically transformed into snow. Other attractions include a full scale carnival, entertainment, hands on arts & crafts, food vendors, and more.

    Snowfest attracts individuals of all ages, from infants to grandparents. Neapolitan Family Magazine even awarded Snowfest, The Family Choice Award - Best Fun for the Family - Festival or Event for Kids. Since its inception, many other Florida cities and counties have contacted us about the event to establish their own snow festivals. The department is very proud of the success of Snowfest and strives to make each year more spectacular than ever.

    about snowfest1

    Snow is cold, so be sure to bring mittens or gloves, hats & perhaps even boots.
