Toronto’s premier cultural district will be transformed into a showcase of incredible ice sculptures and live ice carving demonstrations, for the entire family to enjoy.

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. Patrons can expect to be dazzled by these ice creations, which will include the Parliament Buildings with Centennial Flame, Canadian Mounties an 1867 – 2017 sculpture and the iconic Maple Leaf!

Be sure to stop by their Photo Opportunity Area featuring a spectacular ice creation of ‘Niagara Falls and a Barrel’, located centrally in the Village of Yorkville Park. Be sure to tag your social media photos with #Icefest17 @BloorYorkville.
