Newark Winter Village, a much-loved holiday tradition, returns for the season to transform downtown Newark into a winter wonderland. Visitors can enjoy ice skating, Go-Karts,  games and activities, an open-air holiday marketplace with local vendors, and cozy heated private igloos to enjoy hot cocoa and treats.

There are many “Instagram-worthy” photo-ops available throughout the winter village.

In addition to fun winter activities, visitors can shop in the stylish open-air holiday marketplace with wares from local vendors. There is food and sweet treats to purchase, as well as hot cocoa to warm you up after a few trips around the ice rink.
