Silver Skate Festival


Photo by Marc Chalifoux.

Rooted in Dutch traditions, this 10-day winter extravaganza combines sport (like the kortebaan speed-skating race) with the arts and seasonal outdoor fun. Other family fun includes figure-skating presentations, sleigh rides, live musical and thratrical entertainment, snow sculptures, and free snowshoe, skate, and ski rentals! For the first time, this year’s festival will also feature an acre-sized ice castle — crafted by hand using only icicles and water — that looks like a frozen waterfall or glacier!

For a complete schedule of all the cool events during the festival, be sure to visit the website!
