Toronto is getting a physically distanced ice sculpture trail next month

Please Note: As of January 14, a Stay at Home order is in effect for all of Ontario. This means you must stay at home and only go out for necessities, including getting food, going to work, and getting exercise. Learn more about Ontario’s Stay at Home order here. If you go out, maintain the six-feet physical distancing guidelines and wear a mask.

The Bloor-Yorkville IceFest is set to return next month, and this year’s breathtaking sculptures will take you on a journey across the world.

The festival will take over the neighbourhood from March 12 to 14 and will play into the theme of “A Trip Around the World.”

Some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, and Big Ben, will be included amongst the sculptures.

This year, IceFest has been reimagined as a trail and will span a larger area so that visitors can discover new businesses, safely.

More than 50 one-of-a-kind sculptures will be placed throughout Yorkville’s streets – from Avenue Road east to Yonge Street, and from Bloor Street north to Scollard Street.

“Be inspired to dream about better days ahead, while enjoying all that Bloor-Yorkville has to offer,” the event’s website reads.

Featuring more than 68,000 pounds of ice, the trail can be explored in-person or online via Bloor-Yorkville’s Instagram page and the BIA’s YouTube channel.

Visitors are asked to wear a mask or face covering when visiting the sculptures and to stay six feet away from anyone who is not in their household.

Icefest

When: March 12 to 14
