    3:00 – 7:00 pm

    Naumburg Bandshell (mid-Park from 66th to 72nd Streets)

    Did you know that the Central Park Conservancy maintains Central Park’s collection of 50+ bronze and stone monuments year-round? On the weekend before Valentine’s Day, celebrate your love of Central Park’s sculptures at the sixth annual Ice Festival. Witness ice-carving artists from Okamoto Studio use electric chain saws, chisels, and picks to transform more than 6,000 pounds of ice into a glistening replica of one of Central Park’s most beloved statues.

    As night falls, revel among colorful lights as the Mall becomes a vibrant silent disco with live DJs, all to celebrate the Central Park Conservancy’s preservation efforts.

    Let them know you’re coming!
