Celebrating its 30th year, this festival is an extravaganza of art, culture, recreation and sport! Edmonton’s oldest winter festival returns and it is free for the whole family.

Wander through the snow Sculpture Garden, try your hand at Jam-Can Curling, cheer on the racers at the Kortebaan–a traditional Dutch long-blade skate race, cheer on competitors in the Northgate skate race, explore the magical Silver Skate Folk Trails, or enjoy live entertainment after the sun goes down during Night Works. Don't miss the line-up of artists and live music performers at the festival.

Year after year a favourite amongst visitors is Fire Sculpture. With the pitch black winter sky as a backdrop, sculptures and effigies burn orange, amber and gold dancing across the snow telling tales from all over the world. The hot glow from this beautiful display will warm your ice cold, rosy cheeks–a true goosebumps moment.
