About CISS

Chinatown Ice-Sculptures Showcase

In 2018, the Chinatown Business Improvement Area had a dream to light up Chinatown with Ice-Sculptures and carvings during Chinese Lunar New Years to celebrate what this unique community is all about. 

Our dream was realized in 2019 (the Year of the Pig) when we presented 12 unique carvings at the James Short Park for three weeks. In 2020 (the Year of the Rat), Calgary Chinatown BIA once again re-upped CISS by bringing another dozen ice-sculptures to various locations in the area.
