Call for Fire and Ice Carvers

Attention, novice and professional ice carvers! Destination Sturgeon Bay invites ice and snow carvers to participate in the city’s Fire & Ice event, presented by Stone Harbor. All beginner, intermediate and advanced carvers – individuals and teams of all ages – are encouraged to enter the 2023 carving competition Feb. 18, 9 am – 2 pm. 

Participating carvers will receive a goodie bag filled with coupons and items to use throughout the day. Then a panel of volunteers will judge the carvings and award first, second and third place in each experience level.
