Downtown Erie Community Skating Rink
The Erie Downtown Partnership is bringing a skating rink to East Perry Square through the generous support of Erie Insurance. The Downtown Erie Community Skating Rink will open on Saturday, November 26th, as part of our Small Business Saturday event. The rink will be located in East Perry Square between the fountain and State Street.
Here’s all you need to know about how to enjoy the rink:
HOURS OF OPERATION
The ice skating season will run November 26, 2022 through February 28, 2023 as follows:
Monday – Friday from 5 to 8 PM
Saturday noon-8 PM
Sunday noon-5 PM
The rink may be closed at the discretion of staff due to inclement weather and temperatures. Check our social media for live updates.
The rink will comfortably accommodate 32 skaters at once. If you are coming to skate during big events like Small Business Saturday, Downtown d’Lights, and Erie Winter Carnival, please anticipate wait times. Skaters will have access on a first come, first serve basis. On busier days visitors may be limited to shorter skate times to allow as many people to enjoy the rink as possible.
You can skate for $5 per person, giving you access to skate during hours of operation. Rental skates are included in the cost, or you can bring your own. If you are bringing your own skates the blades must be sharp for safety. We can sharpen them on the premise for you.
