February marks the return of Toronto’s 14th 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 over February 9 and 10.

This year’s theme is Hollywood North, turning Yorkville into a magical display of magnificent sculptures inspired by the success of the film industry in Toronto and Yorkville.

New this year, patrons can participate in the Icefest Scavenger Hunt on Saturday and Sunday, creating a special opportunity to explore the neighbourhood’s shops and attractions.

Specialty cocktails will also be available on the Icefest Sassafraz Patio.
