join us in loring park

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 2019-20 winter season beginning November 29 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.

Join us on opening night (Friday, November 29) at 5 pm for a special skating performance by American Ice Theatre! They will be kicking off the Mpls WinterSkate season with an original performance. Then, lace up and join us on the ice for skating fun.
