Cripple Creek Ice Festival

The historic town of Cripple Creek, Colorado sits on the southwest slopes of majestic Pikes Peak in the beautiful Colorado Rockies.  More than 100 years ago, this charming community attracted tens of thousands of gold-seekers to its hillsides in search of their fortunes. 

 
The Cripple Creek Ice Festival is one of the most exciting times of the year in this historic town. Be sure to join the Cripple Creek community as 160 pound blocks of ice are transformed into this year's theme of Mythologtical Wonderland. Don't forget to stop by the main event tent, where you can purchase votes for your favorite ice sculptures.
 
Fun activities will be available for the event patrons of all ages.  The Ice Maze, Ice Slide, and interactive ice sculptures make this event perfect for photo opportunities and hours of fun.  Be sure to visit our craft and food vendors in the main event tent and in the main event area, and warm up at the Ice Martini Bar, complete with an ice luge.
