The Snowdogs are coming to Kirklees!

The bees buzzed in Manchester. The elephants paraded through Sheffield. The rockets landed in Leicester. And now… the Snowdogs are coming to Kirklees.

For eight whole weeks in Autumn 2022, towns and villages across Kirklees will brought to life by a pack of dazzlingly decorated Snowdog sculptures, creating a spectacular event for our entire community to enjoy.

Each sculpture will be sponsored by a business and individually designed by an artist. A free event for all, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will show off the very best creative talent from local, regional and national artists.

Our pack of Snowdogs will arrive next Autumn, with money raised throughout the event helping to support The Kirkwood, who provide vital care for people affected by any life limiting illness across Kirklees, every step of the way.
