It is time to come out and explore!

Boardwalk Ice on Whyte is brightening up winter in Edmonton by adding breathtaking ice sculptures from award-winning artists to winter patios around downtown and Old Strathcona.

In this tour of the downtown city sculptures you’ll not only meet the talented sculptors who bring these works of art to life and hear the inside stories behind the sculptures, but you’ll see behind-the-scenes of how these plain blocks go from installation, to draft, to fully fledged works of art. At the stops, why not show our local restaurant hosts some love by picking up a bite to eat or drink on your tour.

Every year, Boardwalk Ice on Whyte, brings this festival into being. But as a registered charity, they can’t continue to make this happen without your support.
