To boldly go where no one has gone before.
IceFest is Hamilton’s favorite winter, community event. It takes place around the Historic Butler County Courthouse and throughout downtown Hamilton every two years on the
third weekend of January.
While highlighting spectacular ice sculptures created by international and local carvers, IceFest provides a fun, free and family oriented winter weekend celebration attracting thousands of regional visitors and local residents.
All proceeds from IceFest go to the Hamilton, Ohio, City of Sculpture Inc. to purchase and place permanent sculptures in Hamilton for the community’s enrichment and enjoyment.
