The event has been viewed by over ten thousand visitors. The building teams come from all over Slovenia and even from the neighbour Austria and other European countries. The central event of the Snow castles of king Matjaž is the competition of teams in building snow castles. The three day event is accompanied by a lively cultural and sports program which is entirely connected to the legend of King Matjaž. On Fridays there is also the event of the night slalom next to the torches for the trophy of king Matjaž, and Saturdays are dedicated entirely to building snow castles. The building of the castles is also accompanied every year by a fun cultural program (introduction of the teams, the choosing of Alenčica, performance of accordion players, fire show, the coming of king Matjaž, the announcement of results and the presentations of awards to the best teams. This is all accompanied by performances of well-known musicians.). Sundays are dedicated to spending time with families, interesting games are organized for children, for example: puppet shows, the hunt for the hidden treasure, building and painting of snow sculptures, possibilities of riding and many others.
