The Havre de Grace Alliance will once again bring a spark of life to the dark days of winter with its annual ice festival. This year the festival will have a new theme, “HEROES & VILLAINS!” From legends, movies, and comic books to real-life people, all your favorite heroes and villains can be found in downtown Havre de Grace January 15 & 16. You can even vote for your favorite ice sculptures!

Brought to you by the Havre de Grace Alliance, the Havre de Grace Ice Festival takes place Saturday, January 15, 3:00- 8:00 PM and Sunday, January 16, 12:00-4:00 PM. There will be over 50 beautifully lit ice sculptures throughout the downtown area. A wide array of things to do and see both days include live ice-carving demonstrations, a chili cook-off, outdoor hot toddy garden, live performances, character meet & greets, an Ice Princess parade, vendors, crafters, artisans, corn hole boards made of ice, fire pits, in-store specials and so much more. You can even try your hand at ice sculpting by carving your name into the graffiti wall located on Franklin Street! Radio station WHGM GOLD, the official media partner, will broadcast everything live from the Festival! With the beautiful historic inns located right in town and our host hotel Hilton Garden Inn Aberdeen offering Ice Festival specials, there’s no reason not to stay overnight and spend the weekend with us!
