Ice skating and Winter Village returning to Tampa

Winter Village in Curtis Hixon Park

It’s beginning to look a lot like…summer. It basically always looks like summer in the city of Tampa, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do the holidays just like NYC. Eat your heart out, Rockefeller Plaza, because the Winter Village is coming back.

In case you’ve never experienced the month+ long extravaganza, the Winter Village features tons of local vendors, a big ice skating rink, tasty hot cocoa drinks (listen, it gets cool in the shade), and so much more.

Got a case of the Mondays? Let off some steam at Winter Village tonight! Eat, drink, ice skate and BE MERRY! More info: http://www.wintervillagetampa.com/

The Winter Village returns at the end of November

Winter Village season runs from November 22-January 5. The current map shows space for 10 different vendors, and multiple spaces for food/drink in the Winter Village Cafe.

We know what you’re here for, it’s ice skating. Don’t fret if you don’t own a pair of skates. I don’t think any of us do because, well, Florida. The Winter Village features a skate rental station next to the rink, so we’re all good.

Jam out to your favorite holiday classics with us tonight at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park!
