High on Ice Winter Festival

The 2017 High on Ice Winter Festival will take place February 10-13. Want to get involved in the fun? Here's how:


The High on Ice Winter Festival requires a lot of resources. The event receives support from many local businesses and that's what makes it such a huge success. Cash or in-kind donations are accepted and there are different packages available. Check out the Sponsorship Information link at the bottom of this page. For questions related to sponsorship e-mail recreation@fortstjohn.ca.


High on Ice is organized by a planning committee made up of various community members who represent different organizations. The vast majority of this group is made up of volunteers who are the driving force behind the community events that take place over the weekend. Do you have an idea for a sub event? Even if it's an hour or two we are happy to include new activities in the weekend program!

Be a Vendor

It can get a little chilly down at Centennial Park! Perhaps you cook/serve delicious food that will warm up visitors! Apply to be a vendor by e-mailing recreation@fortstjohn.ca. All vendors must have a business license, food safe, own power supply and have a unit that is approved by the Fort St. John Fire Department. 


Registration is coming up for the annual ice carving and snow sculpting workshops on February 4 and 5. After you sharpen your skills at the workshops, participate in the Community Ice Carving and/or Snow Sculpting Competitions taking place over the course of the festival weekend. Looking for more information on these events? Click the forms below to find out more information regarding dates, times, what to bring, and more!
