Ice Castles

This winter, Ice Castles, LLC will bring its popular winter attraction back to Canada.  Edmonton’s Ice Castle will be built in Hawrelak Park and is in partnership with the City of Edmonton and the Silver Skate Festival. Construction is underway and the Ice Castle is expected to be open to the public late December 2017, through March 2018, weather permitting.

This winter wonderland is crafted by hand, using only icicles and water, and resembles organic formations found in nature, like those of frozen waterfalls, glaciers or ice caves. Guests are invited to not only view the beauty of the structure but also to squeeze, squish and crawl through parts of the stunning Narnia-like display.

Hosting a "Free" Festival is not an easy task. The Silver Skate team is excited about providing a new activity for our Winter City and Albertans and to help provide our Not for Profit Society with more financial sustainability.
