7th Annual Carved In Ice

Butler “CARVED IN ICE” 2023

Butler AM Rotary and Diehl Toyota Butler present the 7th annual “Carved In Ice” charity event. We’ve always had awesome support from area businesses and organizations purchasing ice sculptures, the food and beverage vendors, as well as the public that turns out to enjoy a time for family to enjoy watching the ice carver’s at work, the food, the drinks and the variety of entertainment for all ages in and around Diamond Park on Main Street in downtown Butler. Our chili cook-off returns this year and the hot dog eating contest too! We hope everyone will join us again this year in supporting our event either in purchasing ice blocks, participating as a vendor or just showing up to enjoy the day with family and friends.
