Back in November 2004 I was approached by The Lakefield Village Merchants to carve some ice sculptures about the Village of Lakefield for the area’s winter carnival known as Polar Fest.
Lexy Cameron and I worked as the founding facilitators / organizers of this annual event. It started out with a small budget, which provided the opportunity to create ice sculptures around the Village. As support and interest grew within the community I began to call upon other ice carvers to assist in the sculpting process.
As more professional carvers became involved we embraced the opportunity to harness the talents that these individuals brought forth and capitalize on the natural competitive nature of those involved.
As the event grew Jennie and John MacKenzie owners of The Lakefield Pantry came onboard with her husband John and have worked at developing the funding and support needed to make the Lakefield Polar Fest Ice Sculpting Competition a sustainable platform for the Village of Lakefield.
This annual event occurs on the first weekend of February to coincide with Selwyn Polar Fest, The Kawartha’s premier winter carnival
The Lakefield Polar Fest Ice Sculpting Competition has been proudly sponsored and supported by the Lakefield Village Merchants since 2004.
