Cripple Creek Ice Festival - February 14 - 16 & 22 - 23, 2014
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 7th 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. Our theme for 2014 will feature a fun and lighthearted theme with Cartoons in Ice, and our sculptors have creative masterpieces that are sure to amaze!
The Cripple Creek Ice Festival features numerous fun events to enjoy throughout the two event weekends. Interactive sculptures are available for 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.
