Fire & Ice Festival

February 16 - February 19

This free community event will be held February 16th through the 19th.

The festivities kick off Friday night with live music in the square and the ice guys, from
DiMartino Ice, carving sculptures from 5pm to 9pm. Saturday we bring the fire, with the annual Chili
Cook-off, Kid’s Carnival, and Vendor Fair at Warwick High School. All four
days, visitors have the opportunity to stroll the streets of charming downtown Lititz
and check out all the cool ice sculptures on display!

Now entering its 13th year, Lititz Fire & Ice brings in an estimated 40,000 people
to town over the course of the weekend. It is a fabulous community event and receives
a great deal of organic and scheduled media exposure.

This year’s Lititz Fire & Ice is a partnership between Venture Lititz and the Lititz Lions
Club. Venture Lititz is the Nationally Recognized Main Street Program for downtown Lititz, with the
mission to enhance and sustain both the social and commercial vibrancy of the
Lititz community. The Lititz Lions Club, whose mission is to serve their community, is the local
chapter of the largest international service club in the world.

Lititz Fire & Ice is a fundraiser to support the community programming of both
Venture Lititz and the Lititz Lions Club.
