2020 Reading Fire + Ice Fest
January 17 @ 5:30 pm - January 18 @ 9:00 pm
The Reading Fire + Ice Fest, the premier regional winter festival, returns to downtown Reading for its sixth year. Produced and organized by the Reading Downtown Improvement District (DID) with assistance from the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance, the festival will take place January 17-18, kicking off on Friday, January 17 at 5:30 p.m. in the 500 block of Penn Street.
The festival will once again feature a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, including the Snowfall Bash, professional ice-carving competitions, fire performances, a chili & wing cook-off, live music, food trucks, vendor fair, and the Fire + Ice Craft Beer Fest.
Most activities will be free, with the chili & wing cook-off, Snowfall Bash, and Beer Fest having nominal entry fees.
The Fire + Ice Fest is supported in large part by a generous grant from the Hawley and Myrtle Quier Fund of Berks County Community Foundation.
“We’re gearing up to make the sixth Reading Fire + Ice Fest the best yet,” noted Charles Broad, DID executive director. “Thanks to Berks County Community Foundation’s generosity and support, this signature event will provide great wintertime fun for everyone.”
