Following an incredible turnout the past few years, this year’s event will feature a bigger footprint with more opportunities to enjoy the frozen fun, including:

  • Multiple bars serving cocktails and local DC brews

  • Live Music

  • Ice games

  • Axe Throwing Station

  • Inflatable Jousting Pit

  • Food vendors from neighborhood favorites

NEW for 2019 -- this year Ice Yards and the Polar Bear Plunge will be joining forces to benefit the Special Olympics District of Columbia. Two above- ground swimming pools will be erected at The Yards Park, and participants will "take the plunge" to the cheers of the crowd!
