Celebrate winter in the city at Bloor-Yorkville’s 10th annual Icefest!
Toronto’s premier cultural district will celebrate this landmark year by transforming into a showcase of incredible ice sculptures and live ice carving demonstrations for the entire family to enjoy.
This year, Bloor-Yorkville will be bringing the past back to life in ice with a “Frozen in Time” ancient Egyptian-inspired showcase of striking carvings. From King Tut, to two Pharaohs, an Anubis, an Iris with a Clock and Egyptian Gods, crafted from an astonishing 20,000 lbs. of ice.
Live DJ featuring the sounds of Bellosound.
