Cripple Creek Ice Festival - February 13-15 & 21-22, 2015

The Cripple Creek Ice Festival is a spectacular event.  Come watch ice sculptors carve ice into beautiful works of art that will amaze you.  Going on its 8th annual, the artistic theme of the Ice Festival changes every year.  Themes have included a Mythological Wonderland, Story Time, Under the Sea, a Military Salute Carved in Ice, a Rocky Mountain Wonderland, and a Medieval theme.  The possibilities are endless in 2015, where all sculptors are free to form the ice into any form they choose!

The Cripple Creek Ice Festival features numerous fun events to enjoy throughout the two event weekends.  Interactive sculptures are available forCripple Creek Ice Festival, photo courtesy of Maria Cunningham event attendees to climb on and to have a Kodak moment.  Several sculptures are made just for kids, with a fun ice slide, an ice maze, and carnival-type games that are all made of ice.  Street vendors have just the perfect thing to bring home as a momento of your visit here, and an ice bar with a liquor luge ensures you always have a refreshing beverage to enjoy.
