Ice skate on the rooftop of Whole Foods Market, now through Jan. 15, 2018!
Austin ice skating has returned to the rooftop plaza at Whole Foods Market’s flagship store for its 13th season. Enjoy this festive, wintry activity at the landmark location on North Lamar Boulevard between 5th and 6th Streets. It is real ice, so Austinites can relive childhood memories or introduce their own children to this strange, frozen substance we don’t see much of in Austin.
Admission to Ice Skating on the Plaza is $10 per person, including ice skate rental. The skating rink is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Every Friday, skaters can groove to sweet sounds curated by Austin’s own KUTX, during KUTX Music Friday Series. Grab and go snacks are available at the rink.
Special Holiday Hours
The ice skating rink has special hours for the upcoming holidays:
- Christmas Eve: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Christmas Day: Closed
- New Years Eve: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- New Years Day: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
There are a handful of private parties scheduled, and the rink will be closed to the public during those times. Check the schedule before you go!
Now’s the time to visit, if you want to avoid the crowds from school letting out and family coming into town. Thanks to Ice Skating on the Plaza, we get to enjoy a slice of winter wonderland in Austin this year!
