12th Annual Icefest returns to Bloor-Yorkville
Celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary

 

Toronto’s premier cultural destination will showcase over 20,000 lbs. of ice in support

 of the Heart and Stroke Foundation

 


Celebrate winter with the 12th Annual Bloor-Yorkville Icefest taking place on Saturday, February 25th and Sunday, February 26th throughout the Village of Yorkville Park and surrounding area.

 

This year’s theme will celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, transforming the neighbourhood into a magical showcase of 20,000 lbs. of crystal clear ice sculpted into majestic sculptures inspired by the celebration of Canada’s Confederation. Open to the public on February 25th from 12 Noon–8pm and February 26th from 12 Noon–5pm, the Village of Yorkville Park and Cumberland Street will be the centre of the Icefest attractions. Patrons can expect a wide variety of spectacularly designed ice sculptures and family-friendly activities spread throughout the area, with a ‘Celebrate Canada 150’ ice sculpture exhibit located in the Village of Yorkville Park. 

 

With the help of participating partners and sponsors, Bloor-Yorkville will be continuing to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation in recognition of Heart Month in February. For a small donation, children can look forward to “Ice Kiddie Cubes” with a surprise toy inside, and visitors can enjoy a sweet treat at the Maple Taffy Station with all proceeds supporting the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Cumberland Street will also host a variety of food vendor tents and an Icefest Lounge featuring the smooth sounds of DJ Bellosound.

 

On Saturday, February 25th, the Annual Sassafraz Ice Carving Competition will take place in the Village of Yorkville Park starting at noon. Visitors can enjoy watching talented ice carvers from across Ontario transform blocks of ice into original creations.

 

Between 2pm–5pm visitors are encouraged to cast their vote for their favourite ice sculpture, with The People’s Choice Sculpture winner announced at 5:15pm. Ice carving demonstrations will also take place on Sunday, February 26th
