Downtown Rochester transforms into an icy oasis for SocialICE! Unique themed ice bars—each with its own signature drink—and full-scale ice sculptures illuminated with vibrant hues light up the winter-drab night. Keep your blood pumping with nightly live DJ entertainment. Coming up to its 14th year in 2022, this oh-so-nICE, cold-weather event is free to attend and open to the public.

For family-friendly ice fun, check out SocialICE FAM JAM.

Get involved in SocialICE as a partner or sponsor.

The Rochester Downtown Alliance is now accepting ice bar applications from downtown bars/restaurants (must be physically located within the 44-block SSD). Please contact Kanika Couchene, RDA director of events & strategic partnerships, at for more details.
