Holiday Ice Festival in Downtown Ferndale

Join in the winter fun at the one-of-a-kind Holiday Ice Festival, happening one day only in downtown Ferndale on Dec. 14, 2019.

Downtown Ferndale transforms into a winter wonderland during the Holiday Ice Festival on Dec. 14, 2019, which features more than 50 ice creations lining the streets.

Watch as ice carvers chisel, carve and chainsaw blocks of ice into characters, cartoons and other ice creations.

Plus, watch out for Santa. He’ll arrive at downtown Ferndale’s “North Pole,” which is located at the Planavon parking lot, at 10 a.m. and will be taking free photos with kids, courtesy of Arthur Mize.

After you snap a picture and give him your wishlist, you can see some of his reindeer, which are on display from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the North Pole.

In addition, you can take an urban hayride around town, have lunch with Santa, enjoy some sweet treats in the Ferndale Arts and Cultural Commission’s warming tent and even decorate and mail out a holiday card to a soldier.

The 2019 Holiday Ice Festival runs from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in downtown Ferndale. Admission is free and open to all.
