The Gimli Ice Festival highlights the best of winter on the cold shores of a frozen Lake Winnipeg. Embrace the elements and your inner viking by watching viking warfare demonstrations, cheering at the car races on the ice, eating bannock and tea around the fire and joining in the frozen fish toss.


The festival highlights our community and culture from our Indigenous and Icelandic roots with family fun activities, live entertainment, chili cooking contests, and much more.
