Carlisle's Ice Art Fest
Century Link's Carlisle Ice Art Fest is back!
The 2018 Carlisle Ice Art Fest will feature even more ice sculptures! Plus we will have new activities this year as well as some of your favorites from the 2017 festival. The festival will commence with a Ribbon Cutting at 2nd Time Around on Friday, February 9, 2018 at 4 pm. This will also act as the official start of the festival with the ice sculptures being unveiled (including the Ice Bar), food vendors will open, the digital scavenger hunt will start, the glass blower will be doing demonstrations & workshops, and the carriage rides will begin. The kick off event for the Ice Art Festival will be Improv comedy shows starting at 7 pm at The Vault.
Saturday, February 10, 2018 (9 AM - 9 PM) will include live ice sculpture carvings, Snow Sisters sing along, Snow Sisters meet & greet, penguin toss, chili cook-off and beer tasting, REACH performance, and a Keating Jazz Orchestra performance. Plus don't forget that most shops and restaurants will be open late for your convenience. The festival will also continue with ice sculptures available for viewing (including the Ice Bar), food vendors, the digital scavenger hunt, glass blowing demonstrations & workshops, and the carriage rides.
Sunday, February 11, 2018 (10 AM - 5 PM) will feature two different free movies at the Carlisle Theatre, Cookies & Cocoa with the Snow Sisters, and the Diamond Dig. The festival will also continue with ice sculptures available for viewing (including the Ice Bar), food vendors, the digital scavenger hunt, glass blowing demonstrations & workshops, and the carriage rides.
Be sure to stay tuned for a printable brochure that will have the exact timing and locations of all of the sculptures and events. The Downtown Carlisle Association and the Ice Art Festival committee would like to thank all of the sponsors that helped to make this event possible. Without businesses sponsoring the ice blocks and activities we wouldn't be able to put on the festival.
