This two-day festival in January brings together diverse cultures and revels in the magic and beauty of winter. You will find us with Atih "on the street"
We have attended the Deep Freeze Festival the past two years and loved the experience. We look forward to seeing you on January 11 & 12 in Edmonton. Embrace the cold northern climate by enjoying artistic panache and authentic cultural and heritage winter games and fun.
This year, Saturday will be Ukrainian Cultural Day and Sunday will be Francophone Cultural Day, with Indigenous performances all weekend long. Several festival stages will feature special world music performances on Saturday. For more information, check out http://www.deepfreezefest.ca/
Celebrate winter with us!
Dress warm. Bring a friend. See the magic for yourself!
The winter adventure, Deep Freeze Festival, celebrates the Russian/Ukrainian “Olde New Year” and embraces our northern climate by melding artistic panache with authentic cultural and heritage winter games and fun. Line up your rock, push off the hack and lose your voice encouraging friends and family to sweep in a pick-up game of Old Tyme curling. Families can also enjoy other traditional winter activities including snow wagon rides, winter mini golf, street hockey and the famous deep freezer race. Watch ice sculptors craft their masterpieces, slide down a giant ice slide, cheer on contestants of competition de boucheron (log cutting competition) or just enjoy good Canadian winter eats. Plan on spending a full day if not two at this activity-packed winter celebration.
Where will we be?
Alberta Avenue - 118 Avenue NW & 91 Street, Edmonton
