Detroit Lakes Ice Harvest Festival

The 2018 Ice Harvest will occur on Little Detroit Lake, near the Pavilion on January 11 and 12. Construction of an Ice Palace will take place between the harvest date and February 8. The Opening Party and Grand Lighting of the Ice Palace is scheduled for February 8 as the kick-off to Polar Fest activities which run February 8 through 19.

Detroit Lakes’ resident artist and sculptor, Hans Gilsdorf, will design the ice palace which is expected to be 24 feet tall, 30 feet wide by 60 feet deep. Each 2-foot by 4-foot block of ice weighs around 500 pounds. Approximately 1000-1500 blocks will be needed to complete the palace. Detroit Lakes has some of the best and most beautiful ice in the world and we look forward to seeing it sparkling in lights as a palace!
