2022 Ice Fest

Event by St. Joe Today

Fri. February 25, 2022 | - Sun. February 27, 2022 | Start time not specified.

EVENT UPDATE: Due to the inclement weather, the 2022 Ice Fest in downtown St. Joseph has been rescheduled to February 25-27.

Our ice carvers are coming from all over the country. With current and predicted road conditions, carvers are unable to make the drive. In addition, St. Joseph City staff and the Public Works department have notified us that with the predicted snowfall, they may not be able to keep up with the snow removal as needed for the placement of sculptures and prepare our city streets in the best way for residents and all event attendees.
