January 27th – January 30th, 2022
The Largest Ice Festival In Pennsylvania! 20th Anniversary
Pull out your favorite scarf and mittens, bundle the kids up and be sure to grab your camera; you won’t want to miss the faces of those that sit upon the giant ice throne for the first time or stand beside their favorite sculpture. 
You can also catch a glimpse of the carvers from DiMartino Ice sculpting right in front of your eyes! 
Skilled in their art form, these carvers have trained for many years and can turn a plain block of ice into just about anything.
It’s amazing to watch.
A huge variety of events are scheduled throughout the four-day festival giving you a chance to explore the best of Chambersburg and experience our vibrant Downtown culture for yourself.
Be sure to visit your favorite art galleries, restaurants and boutique stores while enjoying all that Icefest has to offer.
There is so much to see and do, so be sure to check out our schedule of events.
