Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition

JACKSON NH –
This Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce event will be held at Black Mountain Ski Area in Jackson and offers skiing and snowboarding options during the competition.

The event begins on Friday January 29th at noon with teams from all over the Northeastern part of the United States. The team will sculpt throughout the weekend and finish at noon on Sunday. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but welcome to return on Sunday the 31st for the finished products. See first hand how our sculptors take 8 foot high by 4 foot round cylinder of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time.

Sculpting pieces usually remain available for viewing for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos. Please be aware that weather is a factor and we can not guarantee how long the snow sculptures will remain. The sculptures will be lit at night for an entirely different perspective. We anticipate at least 12 or more teams for 2020 and a spectacular show!  Check back often for more updates as this is our 20th Anniversary of the event and we will be sure to celebrate it with some exciting enhancements.

Bring the kids!

There will be scavenger hunts for the kids, and other exciting things to do. Admission for viewing is free but donations are welcome. Please note that lift tickets at Black Mountain are sold separately. We invite the public to attend the welcome dinner on Saturday evening and the awards banquet on Sunday afternoon… venue to be announced. For updates please check back often.

For more up to the moment details for the upcoming January 2021 event please check back. The venue will be posted by April 1st, 2020!

Cold River Mini Series

JACKSON NH – Whether it’s a song, a style, an idiom or an image, Duke Robillard will render it with mastery, power, nuance and an unerring grasp of its essence. Duke’s resume is decorated with Grammy nominations, Handy Awards and Blues Music Awards, and other honors for his artistry, recordings and productions within the United States and internationally. On his latest release, “Duke Robillard and his Dames of Rhythm” on M.C. Records, he wields an acoustic archtop and joins six thrushes for evocative and enjoyable renditions of 1920s and 1930s swing tunes; it’s a worthy successor to his 2016 BMA-winning “The Acoustic Blues And Roots Of Duke Robillard.”

Host Jonathan Sarty opens the show at 4:30pm.
