Shipshewana Ice Festival Competitive Carving and Chili Cookoff

January 21 - January 22, 2022

This is the 14th year for the Shipshewana Ice Festival! Ice carvers will be drilling and shaving blocks of ice all over town. The creations they design are submitted by the sponsor or the carver’s choice. These professional carver’s enjoy the challenge of creating! Please stop in Shipshewana to see them work…or play 🙂 To see more of the carving process, come Friday (Jan 21) and stay until Saturday (Jan 22) to see the finished results!

Bring your tastebuds and your appetite to the Shipshewana Chili Cook-Off that is scheduled to take place during the Ice Festival. Experience a variety of chili’s, talk to our cooks, confer with your fellow judges, and cast your vote for the best Chili. The cook-off will take place downtown at the Smokehouse Grill & Supply store located on Morton Street.
