Winterfest: An Outdoor Ice Skating Event
December 9 through January 2, 2023 at Mulberry Fields Park
Imagine an old-fashioned winter…rosy-cheeked skaters gliding under twinkling lights. Warming frosty fingers around a steaming mug of cocoa, the laughter of children, the aroma of a crackling fire. The magic of holiday events and carolers and the spirit of everyone’s favorite season.
Get ready to lace up a pair of skates and make your way to our outdoor ice skating rink. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy at our month-long event.
Winterfest will take place from December 9 through January 2, 2023 at Mulberry Fields Park. Enjoy ice skating, food vendors and concessions, the holiday makers market, visits from Santa and his reindeer, park programming, sledding and more.
