Grand Opening of Winter Village at Bryant Park

Fri Oct 29, 2021
12:00pm ET
Free admission, extra fee for the rentals

Bryant Park braces for winter with the official launch of its 20th annual Winter Village and the only FREE skating rink in town. Enjoy a twirl on the ice, peruse the Holiday Shops, and snack at the Lodge Deck. The entire experience has been re-imagined with safety in mind.

Once again, ice skating at Winter Village is a fully outdoor experience, and the Holiday Shops have a reconfigured layout with fewer shops to allow for more spacious walkways.

  • Advance online booking is required for all skaters.
  • Tax and a processing fee will be added to each ticket.
  • Skaters with their own skates must book online in advance.
  • Non-skating chaperones are allowed on a limited basis to accompany young skaters, or a visitor with a disability. Other non-skaters are be allowed entry into the ticketed area.
