Winterfest is a two-month long extravaganza featuring an outdoor skating rink with natural ice. This family-friendly celebration of fun-filled activities at the AT&T Raleigh Winterfest Ice Rink kicks off with a FREE, memorable event in City Plaza on Friday, December 4, from 5 pm-11 pm.
Winterfest will feature an outdoor ice rink, performances by local choirs and bands, talented figure skaters and a multitude of other entertainers, a visit by Santa Claus, a reading by Ira David Wood III (star of Theatre in the Park’s A Christmas Carol), delicious food and drinks, headliner Michelle Branch, and the Mayor’s dazzling holiday tree lighting.
The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and the Christmas Wish Program will be accepting donations during the kickoff event on Friday, December 4.
This FREE community-wide kickoff event will be followed by two months of additional programming at the AT&T Raleigh Winterfest Ice Rink. The ice rink will be open seven days a week and admission is $6 (includes skate rental). Please visit our website www.RaleighWinterfest.com for information on hours of operation, directions and scheduled events.
