This winter Mulberry Fields Park will transform into Winterfest, a month-long winter wonderland for the entire family. From December 10, 2021 through January 2, 2022, visitors can ice skate on an outdoor skating rink made of real ice, sled on the sledding hill, listen to live performances, build a wreath at the holiday village and enjoy food and drink.
There will be programming and events to keep visitors coming back. Visitors can participate in a silent disco, skate with the characters from Frozen, visit with Santa and live reindeer, participate in theme nights and more. Online registration is required for some programs and opens today.
“One of my priorities coming into office was to add more recreation and cultural programming for all ages and Winterfest does just that,” said Mayor Emily Styron. “This month-long, family-friendly event will offer Zionsville something new and exciting – winter-oriented programming. Our Parks and Recreation Department team has knocked it out of the park with this event.
“The ice skating rink is the real gem of the event but we also invite the community to come out for entertainment, lighting displays, food trucks and more,” said Parks Superintendent Jarod Logsdon. “We hope this will create a new winter tradition in Zionsville.”
Tickets will be available for purchase on-site at Winterfest. Skate rink admission is $12/person and skate rental is $2/person. There are a limited number of season passes available to purchase online and a limited number of opportunities for individuals and businesses to rent the ice rink for a private event.
Hours will vary while school is in session. During the week, Winterfest will be from 4 to 9 p.m. On the weekend and during Zionsville Community Schools’ winter break, the event will start at noon and close at 9 p.m.
