2020 Ice Carving Artist Application

Step 1 of 3

  • The 21st annual Oregon WinterFest, kicks off on February 14th, in Bend, Oregon. Bend’s own winter carnival will take place February 14th-16th in the Old Mill District.

    Showcase your art for the thousands of visitors that attend Oregon WinterFest each year by participating in the 2020 Oregon WinterFest Ice Carving Exhibition! You will receive $350 for participating in the individual carvings on Saturday and Sunday.

    This year the area devoted to creative displays has been named the Light, Ice & Fire Exposition (L.I.F.E.). The Ice Carving Exhibition will be featured in this section of the festival.

    You provide the talent and the tools; Oregon WinterFest will provide the ice (2 blocks each measuring 10"x20"x40”) per day. You will receive a meal voucher for lunch, access to the onsite artist building, and we will also provide accommodations if you are coming from out of area.

    The Oregon WinterFest committee will review all images of previous work and invite accepted artists to create two ice sculptures at Oregon WinterFest 2020.
