Snow & Ice Carving Competition

Snow and Ice Carving

Carvers will “break the ice” at 9 a.m. with a city-wide ice and snow carving competition. Novice, intermediate, advanced, and professional artists will be carving in front of Sturgeon Bay businesses for a chance to win cash prizes and the People’s Choice Award.

Stroll the streets, and spend the day shopping, dining, and admiring artists transform a 300 pound ice and snow block into jaw-dropping masterpieces.

All ages are welcome to participate (carvers under 18 must have parental supervision to use power tools)! No experience is necessary. Tools are available to borrow for a $10 refundable deposit. 


Where to Find the Carvers

Fire & Ice event maps with ice and snow block locations will be available at local businesses and  Destination Sturgeon Bay  Welcome Center.  Included with every map is a People’s Choice ballot - pick your favorite and cast your vote!
