The Plymouth Ice Festival is celebrating its 42nd anniversary Feb 2-4, 2024, in the Downtown Plymouth area, and is a great event to spend the weekend with family.

During the festival, Kellogg Park and the surrounding area will be filled with many winter activities for everyone to take part in including over 60 ice sculptures, opportunities to see ice being carved live, a petting zoo, and interactive sculptures.

One of the interactive ice sculptures that makes you feel like royalty is the ICE THRONE, which is carved from ice and is the perfect place to take a family photo. It might even become a yearly tradition, as it is for many returning families.

To add even more fun to this world-class event, there will be an Ice Festival Bingo scavenger hunt. The participating businesses will be providing the bingo cards to those who wish to take part in the game. Plus, a chance to explore different restaurants and shops in Downtown Plymouth.

In addition to ice displays and shopping, this year’s event will feature a 100-foot snow Tubing Run, a screening of Disney’s Frozen at Penn Theater, and a  Party Lot and Ice Bar that serves live entertainment, and plenty of warming stations to keep you toasty, including the “Hot Spot,”  which offers food, drinks, face painting, vendors, and more.

There will also be a sensory-friendly festival preview for those with special needs on Feb. 1 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. If you would like to participate, sign up on the Miracle League of Plymouth website.

The Plymouth Ice Festival will be located at Kellogg Park and the surrounding area from 5-10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4. Admission is free but expect to pay for parking.
