This year marks the 12th annual Ice Fest (f.k.a. Winter Fest), taking place on the Downtown Ithaca Commons from Thursday, December 6 through Saturday, December 8th. Ice Fest is an annual tradition in Downtown Ithaca. What holiday season would be complete without a celebration of cold weather and cold weather sports...like Ice Carving! Witness the nation’s finest ice carvers as they compete for $9,000 in prizes during breathtaking competitions in Downtown Ithaca. The festival features impressive display sculptures, fire demonstrations, the ever-popular Ice Bar: an outdoor bar made entirely of ice, serving beer, wine, and hot cocoa, and a tasty Chowder Cook-off. Ithaca Ice Festival ice carving competition is a National Ice Carving Association sanctioned event.
We are excited to offer the opportunity to sponsor an ice sculpture again this year with two options: a custom sculpture that incorporates your businesses's logo, or one of the sculptures created through the Speed Carving competition.
Fees: Speed Carving Competition Original Sculpture: $150 - The design will depend on what the carver chooses for the competition that night (delivered Saturday morning, as the competition is Friday evening)Custom Sculpture: $250 (delivered Thursday depending on weather)

If you are not located within the BID, your sculpture will be placed on the Commons. We will follow up to let you know of location once we have an idea of the amount of sculpture orders we have.
