Celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary
Celebrate winter with the 12th Annual Bloor-Yorkville Icefest taking place on Saturday, February 25th and Sunday, February 26th throughout the Village of Yorkville Park and surrounding area.
This year’s theme will celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, transforming the neighbourhood into a magical showcase of 20,000 lbs. of crystal clear ice sculpted into majestic sculptures inspired by the celebration of Canada’s Confederation. Open to the public on February 25th from 12 Noon–8pm and February 26th from 12 Noon–5pm, the Village of Yorkville Park and Cumberland Street will be the centre of the Icefest attractions. On Saturday, February 25th, the Annual Sassafraz Ice Carving Competition will take place in the Village of Yorkville Park starting at noon. For a small donation, children can look forward to “Ice Kiddie Cubes” with a surprise toy inside, and visitors can enjoy a sweet treat at the Maple Taffy Station with all proceeds supporting the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Cumberland Street will also host a variety of food vendor tents and an Icefest Lounge featuring the smooth sounds of DJ Bellosound.
