Bloor-Yorkville Icefest

On February 9th and 10th, you can join in the fun at the 14th annual Bloor-Yorkville Icefest, an annual event held in Toronto [. At this free winter celebration, you can contemplate ice sculptures and witness the artists carving their masterpieces for the Annual Sassafraz Ice Carving Competition. The competition will be in Yorkville Park on February 9th at noon.

The theme of this year’s festival is Hollywood. Nearly 70,000 lbs of ice have been dedicated to the sculptures, inspired by famous cinematic works shot in Toronto and especially in Yorkville. Some sculptures you should not miss while visiting are the Icefest cinema, the giant popcorn box, the movie projector, the iconic Oscar statue, and the paparazzi. There will be music from top DJs from Bellosound and you can vote for your favourite sculptures. A new activity is the Icefest Scavenger Hunt so you can explore the shops and attractions in the neighborhood.

Besides offering fun and entertaining activities, the festival gives back to the community by continuing to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Village of Yorkville Park and surrounding area.
Sat. February 9th, 2019 from 12:00pm – 8:00pm
