FestivICE 2016

FestivICE is York's cold-defying winter ice festival and it's coming to the heart of downtown York in 2016. It’s an extension of the holidays with over 6,000 pounds of interactive ice and even more entertainment. Get together with family and friends on Beaver Street and Cherry Lane to shake off cabin fever and laugh at the cold!

Special Olympics York County will again be the FestivICE non-profit partner and will benefit from various elements of the event. Special Olympics York County also hopes to use this event as a vehicle to increase awareness about their organization and their annual Polar Plunge, which will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2016.

Register today to join the rest of the wild yetis - or just show up on Saturday, January 16th!



  • LIVE ice sculptures by DiMartino Ice Company of Jeannette, PA
  • LIVE music
  • The FestivICE Yeti is back!  Look for Yeti appearances along with the York Revolution’s own, Downtown mascot.
  • Yeti Stomp - If you didn’t know that Yetis dance, you know now.  Weary Arts Group will show you how it’s done so you can stomp with the FestivICE Yeti, reigning king of cold funk.
  • Jaycees are back with their best chili yet.  Come taste the goodness and fight the chill with piping-hot chili.
  • Face painting, balloon artists, rides, games, inflatables… and more awesomeness.
