Beginner, Advanced Ice Carvers Needed for Fire & Ice Fest

Express your creativity in an uncommon medium – ice – at Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s Fire & Ice Festival, Feb. 17.

The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center is seeking beginner, intermediate and advanced ice carvers to compete for cash prizes. Carving begins at 9 am in various locations throughout Sturgeon Bay. A panel of volunteers will judge all ice carvings beginning at 2 pm. The award ceremony begins at 3 pm in the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center (36 S. Third Ave.). Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded by carving experience level.

Individuals and/or teams are encouraged to participate. Participation is free and carving experience is not necessary for beginner level. All carving levels may use power tools; beginners may use basic power tools, such as hair dryers, heat guns, or drills. (Children who are participating must have parental supervision.) Hand carving tools are available for use from the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center for a $10 refundable deposit.

To participate, fill out an application at on the Fire and Ice page (located under “Special Events”). To receive an application by mail or for more information, call 920.743.6246 or email [email protected].
