Ice Festival

You could hibernate all winter, but that would be awfully boring. So instead of complaining about the cold, why not embrace it at the Lake Metroparks Farmpark annual Ice Festival?!

The event will feature a variety of winter-themed activities including carving competitions, demonstrations, a battle between fire and ice and much more. See the miniature Zamboni from the Mentor Ice Arena as part of a children's ice-themed story hour on Friday and Saturday. Visitors will also enjoy crafts, a hot cocoa and s’mores bar, fire pits and live music.

Friday night starts with speed-carving competitions and the night’s festivities will conclude with a large fire inside a six-foot tower of ice. Can’t picture how fire will burn inside ice? Come to Farmpark to see for yourself!

The festivities will continue on Saturday with Elegant Ice Creations’ World Champion ice carver Aaron Costic competing against other local speed carvers to the cheers of the crowd. Visitors will also be treated to many other winter-themed activities and Farmpark’s daily activities. So brave the cold and make Farmpark’s Ice Festival your northeastern Ohio winter tradition!

Regular Farmpark admission applies. Farmpark members and children under 2 get in free.
