How can I get Involved?
You are invited to become a Member of the World ICE Association, the governing body that produces Ice Alaska and the World Ice Art Championships. Annual membership fee is $25, this modest fee allows the organization to cover the administrative costs required by both Alaska State and Federal Government for all 501c3 non-profit entities. We also have volunteering opportunities!
Where is Ice Alaska ?
Ice Alaska is an event produced by the World ICE Association in Fairbanks Alaska. In 2019, our venue will be the Tanana Valley State Fairgrounds. This is our first year using the Fairgrounds, and we hope to make this our new permanent home.
Can I take Photos at Ice Alaska?
We encourage everyone to enjoy themselves and taking photos is a natural part of that participation. We encourage sharing photos, however, sales and profiting from photos is considered a copy right infringement with out written promission. The News Media already receives official photographs at no cost for the purpose of publicizing and reporting on our event.
Can I bring my dog to Ice Alaska?
Please respect that this is an event involving Ice Art and children. There are several factors to remember here. As a non-profit, Ice Alaska cannot afford the liability of an unfortunate event occurring between one visitor’s dog and another visitor’s child. Dogs, by nature, mark and leave deposits around the places they visit. We cannot afford the liability of clean-up should someone’s child slide into some freshly soiled snow/ice. Finally, there is the Ice Art to consider. For every 1 dog and handler that can successfully navigate two hours around the Park without once lifting a leg, there’s a half dozen who just can’t go more than 5 minutes without leaving a reminder of their presence. The Ice art is special, and the only way to ensure it remains clean is to request that dogs not enter the Ice Art area.
Can I smoke at Ice Alaska?
Our Property owners have a No Smoking Policy in which Ice Alaska has to abide by. Thank you for your understanding.
