Plymouth Ice Festival

The Plymouth Ice Festival is celebrating 29 years of making downtown Plymouth, MI come alive in January. The celebration this year takes place January 20-22, 2012.  The free, family friendly winter ice festival has averaged 500,000 visitors during the past 28 years, pumping more than one million dollars to the city’s stores and restaurants each year. The Plymouth Ice Festival has helped establish ice carving as a world-class competitive event. It is the oldest, largest ice-carving event in North America. In 1998 and 2002, Plymouth sent their best to participate in an Olympic demonstration sport in Nagano, Japan.

Ice sculpture, ice carving, and snow carving takes many forms and each artist has their own ideas on what makes a quality and must see ice sculpture or snow sculpture. The Ice Artists answer questions while ice carving and display their techniques and tricks.
