Watch incredible ice sculptors in action at Ice on Whyte in Edmonton

Jan 22 2020, 5:13 pm

Witness incredible ice sculptors at work, or even try your hand at making something, at one of Edmonton’s outdoor festivals starting January 23.

Ice on Whyte is an ice-carving festival complete with food, beverages, ice-carving lessons and special activities for the entire family to enjoy, and can even make for a great date night.

Ice on Whyte is one of only three international ice-carving competitions in Canada, and features some of the best ice carving talent from around the world.

The carvings will be scored by skilled judges, and each ice carving is judged on first impression, structure, skill and technique, details, concept and design, creativity and artistic merit.

Adults can also experience ice carving lessons in the festival’s ice bar, or just simply enjoy a drink to stay warm.

Little ones are also able to try their hand at carving with lessons in the festival’s inflatable igloo.

For more information on the festival, or to buy tickets, check out the Ice on Whyte website.
