ICE CASTLE

Visit the frozen masterpiece!

castle is a type of fortified structure built during the Middle Ages by nobility or royalty or by military orders. Many castles were originally built from earth and timber, but had their defenses replaced later by stone. They were built mostly for protection.

We built the coolest CASTLE you’ve ever seen – with ICE and not for protection but for fun!

Saskatoon architect and artist Don Greer creates winter ice masterpieces each year and this is his first time creating one for Nutrien WinterShines. The ICE CASTLE is nestled in Market Square – overlooking the intersection of 19th Street and Avenue A.

Check out the castle out at night to see the amazing light display – a collaboration between Production Lighting, Studio deShutter,  and Don Greer and made possible by the 2019 Winter Cities Shake-Up conference.
