Wells Fargo Mpls WinterSkate in Loring Park (1382 Willow Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402) offers you a chance to skate under the downtown Minneapolis skyline. Join us for one of Minnesota’s favorite winter activities. The skating rink will be open once again during the 2017-18 winter season beginning November 15 and running through the beginning of March.
Skating on the rink is free, and complimentary skates are available during warming house hours on a first-come, first-served basis. Sizes and quantities vary.
In the event of inclement weather (heavy snow or a combined temperature and wind chill of 20 degrees below zero), the warming house will be closed.

post on social media and you could win big!
This winter, Wells Fargo is providing a social media giveaway during the WinterSkate season. Skaters are encouraged to take photos on the rink (use of the WinterSkate social media frames are encouraged), and post your photos on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Post must include “@WellsFargo #mplswinterskate”. Each month from November through March, one person who posted a photo using “@WellsFargo #mplswinterskate” will be selected to receive two (2) tickets to sit in Wells Fargo’s center-ice suite at the Xcel Energy Center for the Minnesota Wild vs. Boston Bruins game on March 25, 2018. A total of 10 tickets will be awarded (5 winners + 1 guest each) during the promotion. We look forward to you sharing your experience at the Wells Fargo Mpls WinterSkate!
