Expressions Of Love

A Saturday, February 20 & Sunday, February 21 • 12 noon – 5 pm Village of Yorkville Park

Cumberland Street & Bellair Street will be closed to traffic along the park perimeter.

Fall in love with Bloor-Yorkville at the 11th 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.

Inspired by Heart Month and the Valentine’s Day season, this year’s Expressions of Love theme will transform the neighbourhood into a magical showcase of 20,000 lbs. of crystal clear ice, sculpted into iconic expressions of amour. Patrons can expect to be dazzled by these ice creations, which will include an iconic LOVE sculpture, a giant tribute to world peace, an abstract couple embracing, a winter-themed heart, and a depiction of the ultimate love story – Romeo & Juliet!

Live DJ featuring the sounds of Bellosound.
