In 2018, WAFF launched the Ice House to share what it means to live in a truly cold home.

In the dead of winter, WAFF partners with Ice Lab to create an experience for D.C.-area residents and visitors to understand what it means for our neighbors in need to go without heat. It’s our opportunity to raise awareness, empathy, and funds for WAFF recipients. In its first two years, the Ice House generated an additional $280,000 for the fuel fund.  

What to Expect in 2020

The 3rd Annual Ice House will return to The Wharf’s District Pier in Southwest D.C. on January 17th from 12-6 pm and on January 18th from 12-5 pm!

During your visit, you can support your neighbors in need and enjoy a number of activities for all ages:

  • Test out our “Bring the Heat” thermal photo booth!
  • Enter to win VIP experiences from the Washington Capitals, Wizards and NBC4 Storm Team!
  • Enjoy face painting from 12-5 pm on Saturday, January 18!
  • See former Redskin Brian Mitchell and Washington Bullet Phil Chenier on Saturday, January 18 at 2pm!
