Winter Warm-Up Ice Sculptures in Downtown West Bend

Winter Warm-Up Ice Sculptures in Downtown West Bend

Winter Warm-Up is Bigger Than Ever in 2024!

Published: December 14, 2023 | Article Views: 1223

West Bend Winter Warm-Up returns this year bigger than ever! For the first time in the event’s history, activities and winter fun will extend for three days from January 19-21. The ice sculptures arrive on Friday, kicking off the celebration. Over 60 beautiful pieces of frozen art will line the streets and the newly constructed Riverwalk. Grab your map and take a stroll down Main Street and beyond to check out each piece, and warm up your fingers and toes in downtown shops and restaurants to enjoy winter special deals and treats! Musician Nathan Mayfield will perform at Old Settlers Park from 5-7 p.m., so enjoy the show while warming up by the fire pits!

Live music and vendors will join the sculptures on the streets Saturday, setting the perfect scene for a downtown stroll. This year’s performer lineup includes Downtown Harrison at The Bend Theater from 12-2 p.m. and Eugene Gruber at Old Settlers Park from 1-3 p.m.  Just a short drive from Main Street, check out the Hugh Jass Fat Tire Bike Race in Regner Park, setting off at 11 a.m. Register to take your bike through the exhilarating course at Regner, or just watch the race and join in the after-party! Looking for one more stop on a full day of fun? Head back downtown to The Bend Theater for a performance from Southbound & Friends: Dark Side of the Moon. Tickets to this Pink Floyd tribute are moving quickly, so grab yours today!

Wrap up the weekend with another full day of fun on Sunday! A team of sled dogs from H2M2 Nation will set up in Old Settlers Park, so be sure to stop by, pet the dogs, and grab a photo! Musical entertainment will be provided by Tim Kieffer in Old Settlers Park from 1-3 p.m. If you’re looking to get out of the cold, The Bend Theater’s doors will be open for three screenings of Disney’s Frozen II on the big screen with Elsa, Ana, and Kristoff along for a meet-and-greet.

Winter Warm-Up is your perfect escape from the winter blues. Step outside and make memories all weekend! See the full schedule of events at!
