Who needs snow in the wintertime? Enjoy an evening of ice skating under the stars and palm trees at downtown San Jose's Circle of Palms Plaza amidst other South Bay seasonal attractions such as the traditional Christmas in the Park and Winter Wonderland. The South Bay's largest seasonal outdoor skating rink, produced by the San Jose Downtown Association, partners with Kristi Yamaguchi's Always Dream Foundation and routinely attracts more than 100,000 people each season. Your ticket includes admission to Downtown Ice's circular rink, plus skate rental.
Enjoy ice skating under the stars – and palm trees – at one of the most breathtaking rinks on the planet. Where else can you spin and glide under clear skies and swaying palm trees that twinkle at night?
Head to Downtown Ice in downtown San Jose and experience for yourself why more than 45,000 skaters spin around the one-of-a-kind circular rink in the Circle of Palms Plaza each holiday season. Located in the heart of downtown at 120 S. Market Street, between the San Jose Museum of Art and the Fairmont Hotel, the rink is at its best after dark when lights twinkle off the 32 palms and stars shine from overhead.
There are no lockers or secure storage on site. Please do not bring valuables to the rink. There are no restrooms once you enter the ice rink, so it is recommended that you use the facilities located adjacent to the rink, in the plaza area, prior to entering.
Downtown Ice is a San Jose Downtown Association production.
