Nine Days of Frosty Fun at Winter Carnival

Better than ever, this year's event features a Skating Showcase, Silent Disco, Ice Castle, and much more.

Last year’s Winter Carnival at Bank of America Winter Village was such a hit that this year, we’re extending it to nine days. Mark your calendars, because from Friday, January 27 through Saturday, February 4, Bryant Park will be host to a frosty celebration featuring the return of many of your favorite activities and amenities from last year, with some new surprises in store as well.  

You can learn curling, take skating lessons, dance at a Silent Disco hosted by Southwest Airlines, and try your skills at a Virtual Snowball Throw Competition. There will be photo ops galore at the Ice Castle on the Fountain Terrace, and throughout the Carnival, you can escape the cold in the cozy Warming Lodge or purchase beer, authentic glühwein, and some comfort food at the Outdoor Winter Brew House on The Deck.

The Rink will be a busy place, hosting many activities as well as three of Winter Carnival’s featured events: a Skating Showcase, an elegant Ice Ball, and Sk80s Night, an 80s-themed skate event. So instead of letting winter get you down, bundle up and embrace the cold! The full schedule of events is available on the Winter Village website, so check it out and make your plans. We are pleased to acknowledge that Time Out New York is the official media partner for Winter Carnival.
