Additional Information

Yeti Fest is a festival where the abominable snow people of Rockton (and their friends) come out to enjoy snow sculpting, yeti hunting, ice skating, dog sled mushing (new!) or yeti special eating, drinking (including onesie pub crawling) and buying! 

Watch amazing snow sculptures being carved starting Wednesday, Jan. 31 at Settlers Park with sculptures finishing on Saturday, Feb. 3. Visit on Friday and Saturday to vote for your favorite sculpture - $1 per vote. The top three teams split their prize money with the Rockton Lions Club, and the remaining proceeds also go to the Lions Club. Awards will be given out at the chili lunch at the American Legion in downtown Rockton on Saturday, Feb. 3 from 11 am - 2 pm. 

Giant Community Snow Fort: Starting Wednesday, Jan. 31, head to Settlers Park to do your part in building the largest snow fort Rockton has ever seen! A limited amount of snow fort-making brick forms will be available, but please feel free to bring your own supplies.
