The largest ice festival
in Pennsylvania!

Pull out your favorite scarf and mittens, bundle the kids up and be sure to grab your camera; you won’t want to miss the faces of those that sit upon the giant ice throne for the first time or stand beside their favorite sculpture. You can also catch a glimpse of the carvers from DiMartino Ice sculpting right in front of your eyes! Skilled in their art form, these carvers have trained for many years and can turn a plain block of ice into just about anything. It’s amazing to watch.

Events are scheduled throughout the four-day festival and include, but are not limited to, the official ribbon-cutting ceremony, live carvings, Snowfall Ball, Chili Q,  Beer Garden, live glass blowing demonstrations, Icing on the Cake, the free double-wide ice slide and Run Your Ice Off 5K. There are many more events, so be sure to check out our schedule of events.


IceFest is an important fundraiser for three Chambersburg organizations: Council for the Arts, Downtown Business Council and Downtown Chambersburg Inc. Thanks to the support of local businesses and community members, these three organizations are able to continue planning and coordinating this significant event for the Chambersburg area.

The IceFest committee, a group of local volunteers, plan and coordinate the four-day festival. A huge thank you to all of those who make these events happen! If you are interested in joining the committee, contact chambersburgicefest@gmail.com.


IceFest originated in 2002 to help shake the mid-winter blues that fall upon us. A large group of volunteers came together to bring displays and other activities to get us out of our houses and into our local community. Over the years, the committee has grown, the events have grown and the crowds have grown.
