Leavenworth loves winter, and each year on MLK Jr. weekend we celebrate winter's bounty with IceFest! The village is still dressed in over half a million twinkling lights and this weekend is a flurry of frosty frivolity. Come celebrate winter with us!

Full schedule of events to come! Here's a taste of what we're planning*:

Snow Sculptures! Gather a team of five and register at 9am Saturday at the Gazebo to compete, or just enjoy our featured sculpture crafted by a family that has been coming to IceFest for 17 years! (Competition Saturday; sculptures up Sunday)

IceFest Games & Activities! The Great Frisbee Sweep! The Ice Cube Scramble! Kid's Crafts! Snowball Toss! Ice Fishing! Bavarian Mug Relay! Smooshing! (Saturday)

Snowmobile Sled Pull! Let our local boys, the Bavarian Boondockers, give you a sled ride behind a snowmobile! (Saturday)

Live Ice Carving! Ice. Chainsaws. Art. Need we say more? (Saturday; sculptures up Sunday)

Dog Sled Rides on Blackbird Island! Our friends at Northwest Dog Sled Adventures would love to take you on the ride of your life through the trails on Leavenworth's beautiful Blackbird Island! (Saturday & Sunday)

Rail Jam Hosted by Stevens Pass! Stevens Pass comes to Leavenworth's Front St Park! With a beer garden and DJ, you just have to decide whether you want to spectate or participate! (Saturday; click here to register) 

Chili Crawl! Follow our map featuring made-from-scratch chili at local area restaurants and businesses and vote on your favorite! (Sunday)

Fireworks! We'll end the festivities Sunday evening with a BANG! (Sunday)

* Many of these events and activites are dependent on snow and may be cancelled, but we guarantee that IceFest will be a blast regardless of Mother Nature's plans! Just like in 2014 when we threw a luau instead!
