Old Strathcona comes shimmering to life with Ice on Whyte!
The 8th annual Ice on Whyte showcases an International Ice Carving Competition with artists from China, Holland, Russia, Armenia, and across Canada.

Ice on Whyte 2011 has a Chinese theme with ice and snow carvers coming from Edmonton’s sister city of Harbin, China. Nine Chinese artists will collaborate with their Canadian counterparts to create a fantasy-filled park that will include a Giant Ice Dragon Slide, an Ice Pagoda, a Great Wall, a Children's Play area and much more.

Warm up with a hot beverage available by donation in the YESS Cafe (in support of the Youth Emergency Shelter Society), then check out the action at the EIA Entertainment Stage with Chinese cultural performances and live blues, jazz, and folk music. Or take the mic yourself with Frozen Friday Karaoke!

Entrance to the park is $5.00 for adults and $2.50 for children ages 2 to 12 years old. Tickets are available only at the festival gate. Bring EXACT CHANGE on weekends to enter the park through the Express Line.

FREE PARKING ON WEEKDAYS at the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market Parking lot AND FREE PARK AND RIDE ON WEEKENDS from NAIT Souch Campus, 7110 Gateway Blvd.
