Ice Magic Festival 2019 Recap

Add to my moments

The ice chips have settled and another year of incredible artwork has emerged from the annual Ice Magic Festival in Lake Louise.

In addition to hosting some of the most accomplished ice carvers in the world, this year the event also celebrated 25 years of competition at the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The theme for this year - "25 Years of Magic" - evoked striking sculptures from a diverse range of international carvers, travelling from as far away as Republic of Skaha (Russia) and Latvia.

If you missed this year's event, be sure to mark your calendar for next year: January 15 - 26, 2020.
