About the Festival

Keep Deep Freeze growing and going!

Welcome to our tenth year! 

We are pleased to announce that the tenth-annual Deep Freeze: Byzantine Winter Festival will be held on January 14 & 15, 2017 and will be situated along four closed blocks of Alberta (118) Avenue between 90 and 94 Streets.

The Deep Freeze Byzantine Winter Festival is a free family event that brings together Ukrainian, Franco-Albertan, Franco-African, First Nations, and Acadian/East Coast communities to revel in the magic and beauty of winter. Come embrace our cold northern climate by melding artistic panache with authentic cultural and heritage winter games!

This year’s theme Village Upside Down will offer exciting opportunities for both patrons and artists creating unexpected experiences celebrating the community through its urban landscape and exceptional spaces.
