This year, the ice sculptures will truly be the stars of Winterlude!
Due to evolving public health measures, and because the well-being of all remains our highest priority, Canadian Heritage has taken a safer approach for Winterlude 2022. As such, in-person activities at the Snowflake Kingdom and in Ottawa, will not take place.
For the 44th edition of Winterlude, Canadians from coast to coast will get to enjoy world-class works of art and vote online for their top 3 favourite sculptures as part of Winterlude’s ever-popular National Ice-Carving Championship.
Winterlude National Ice-Carving Championship
Representing every one of Canada’s 10 provinces, teams of 2 sculptors have 20 hours to sculpt 15 blocks of ice and to create a work of art inspired by the theme ‘’Olympic and Paralympic spirit,’’ a nod to the 2022 Winter Games.
