February marks the return of Toronto’s 13th annual Icefest in Yorkville.

Toronto’s historic Yorkville neighbourhood will be transformed into a showcase of delicate, stunning ice sculptures using over 70,000 lbs of crystal clear ice from February 24 to 25.

This year’s theme is Medieval Times, turning Yorkville into a magical display of magnificent sculptures inspired by the chivalry, rivalry & revelry in celebration of the middle ages.

Additionally, ice carvers will be creating unique sculptures at the Annual Sassafraz Ice Carving Competition taking place in the Village of Yorkville Park starting at noon on Saturday, February 24.

There will also be plenty of food, a ‘Maple Syrup Taffy Station’, ice carving demonstrations by some of the most talented ice carvers in Ontario, and an Icefest lounge.

February is Heart Month and Icefest will help support the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

So clear some room in your calendars this weekend, as this is a winter event you won’t want to miss!
