Ahoy, Iceworm! Get ready for Iceworm Festival

Happy New Year, Cordova!

The 2022 Iceworm festival is coming up Jan. 29-Feb. 5. We hope all you swashbucklers are ready for this year’s festival, themed “Ahoy Iceworm!” The schedule is starting to take shape, so sail on over to icewormfestival.com for all your festival needs (our facebook is a good spot too).

There are a few things to get ready for, including:

The Iceworm Festival has always been community driven, by and for the community. The Iceworm Committee works hard year-round to fundraise, promote and bolster the festival to new heights. Most of the fun is put on by businesses and residents to cure those winter blues, with the committee hosting a few key events. We are a group of women you know, who have spent over 30 years in Cordova. Since we were handed the torch in 2015, we’ve added 10 new kids to our lives, while we work full time jobs and volunteer hundreds of hours to our community. So, as we look to the future and find ways to refine and improve events, we need YOU to volunteer! Reach out via email at icewormfestival@gmail.com, Facebook messages, or when you see us around town, and we will help find a way for you to give back to the community this year or next.

There has been a lot of change lately, but this festival is a constant, and a welcome opportunity to come together for some serious community fun. See you around!
