The Snowball Party began in 2011 on a misty magical night in Echo Park.  We started Snowball as a way to entertain our friends by introducing them not only to each other but to the city of Los Angeles.  It is now in its 5th year, and people love the heck out of it.


JOHN PICK is a native of Chicago and wanted to bring some of the midwestern openness to his new city, Los Angeles. He invented Snowball from a dance he and a bunch of 13 year olds did at mid-1990s bar mitzvah (also drawing inspiration from the NCAA Tournament). So far, it’s worked (though his dog has a bad habit of running away during the event).  Also an actor and producer, John created the Best of Craigslist, a critically acclaimed live show and web series, now on truTV’s Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack.  He's also been seen on Conan.



Each Snowball is designed and supported by the Snow Patrol, a dedicated group of social engineers, party planners, fun machines, and mischief makers. If you loved doing Snowball and are interested in being on Snow Patrol, drop us a line at thesnowballparty1@gmail.com . We'd love you to roll with us!
