Ice block caring takes place from noon to 8 p.m. on the 100 block of East Washington Street. The fee to sponsor an ice carving is $200 per 300-pound block and you can order as many blocks as you like – there’s a limited number this year so act now!

Here are pictures from the 2017 Festival.

Ice Sculpture – Design Requests

Each sculpture is carved from a block of ice that is 40″ x 20″ x 10″. The average height of the completed sculpture is three feet. You can either choose to allow the carver to create something of his or her own choosing or make a specific request. If you have a specific item or image in mind, you must email a digital photo of the image no later than December 11. The Michiana Ice Carvers will do their absolute best to accommodate your wishes.

Hospitality and Safety Goshen Style

On the day of the event, we kindly ask downtown businesses to clear the sidewalk in front of your store.
