Bryant Park’s famous Bank of America Winter Village is set to return for its 21st season, offering New Yorkers the city’s only free admission ice-skating rink, a renowned open-air holiday market, and the cozy rinkside Lodge with its seasonal cocktails and food. The Winter Village will be open daily starting October 28 through March 5.
At the center of the village is the 17,000-square-foot ice skating rink, which is open daily throughout the holiday season. Skate rental tickets can be reserved online.
The Lodge provides a “rinkside, après skate escape” where visitors can enjoy festive cocktails and food, and watch as ice skaters round the rink.
Urbanspace’s European-inspired holiday market will open to the public through January 2. The open-air market will feature over 170 new and returning vendors. Four NYC minority-owned businesses with yearly revenues of $1 million or less will be given a rent-free booth, as part of Bank of America’s “Small Business Spotlight.”
Over the coming days, the Village will announce a more detailed list of holiday market merchants, dining options, and seasonal programming.
