The Midtown attraction returns on October 28 for daily ice skating, holiday shopping, and more. ⛸️🎁

by New York Bucket List


There are over a dozen ice skating rinks across New York City, but on October 28, at 12:00 pm the only free-admission ice rink will be open for skating, along with the open-air holiday market and cozy igloos of the Bryant Park Winter Village.

The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park has become a seasonal staple, and on October 28, visitors can once again expect the same festive favorites including The Lodge, an après skate escape, situated next to the rink. After taking a few loops on the ice, guests can kick back and watch the ice skaters, sip on holiday-themed cocktails, and grab a bite to eat.

The expansive market is back too, where you’ll find shops selling a myriad of items from unique holiday ornaments to handmade candles and soaps to NYC souvenirs and everything in between. Located along Bryant Park’s allées, plazas, and terraces, the Holiday Shops are housed in custom-designed kiosks so visitors can weave in and out throughout the park, and shop for the perfect holiday gift, all with hot cocoa in hand.
