VILLAGE OF YORKVILLE PARK (CUMBERLAND ST. & BELLAIR ST.)
Toronto’s premier cultural district will become a showcase of incredible ice sculptures and live ice carving demonstrations.
This 80’s are back baby and this year’s event will be spectacular as we feature the Awesome 80’s, transforming the neighbourhood into a magical display of over 70,000 lbs. of crystal-clear ice carved into magnificent sculptures inspired by the music, art, film and fashion of an awesome decade. All things 80’s are retro-cool again!
Patrons can expect to be dazzled by these ice creations at the Main Ice Exhibition located beside “The Rock” in the Village of Yorkville Park, which will include an 80’s sculpture, a Boombox, an Elton John silhouette, Converse sneaker, Madonna – Desperately Seeking Susan, Leg Warmers & Heels, Andy Warhol, a Roller Skate and Eddie Van Halen!
Our Photo Opportunity area will feature a DeLorean – Back to the Future sculpture. Be sure to tag your social media photos with #Icefest20 @BloorYorkville.
ICEFEST LOUNGE will feature a special curated selection of smooth sounds with live DJ’s from Bellosound. Stop by to warm up and take a selfie or group photo at the Icefest Photo Booth or plug in your mobile phones at one of our charging stations.
