It is almost winter, and since we are in Northern Europe, so an ice sculpting festival is practically a must! The International Ice Sculpture Festival has been organised in Poznań for eleven years now, and always draws an international crowd. The Festival will take place from the 7th to the 8th of December, 2019. The first day features the most spectacular competition – Speed Ice Carving. The second day features the Main Competition, during which 12 double teams will work furiously all day long. 24 sculptors from 11 countries will compete this year - the ice artists come from the United States, Philippines, Canada, Ukraine, Spain, Mexico, Malaysia, Czechia, Serbia, Netherlands, and naturally, Poland. The" ice stage" will be set up in the Old Town Square. If you get hungry watching the competition, do not hesitate to try delicious treats at the Christmas Market!
