Denison on Ice 2022

Denison on Ice

Denison on Ice 2022 in downtown Denison TX

The outdoor holiday ice sating rink will return to Downtown Denison on November 19m, 2022.  The ice rink has become a regional holiday tradition that draws visitors from across the county and even across the United States. This is one of our favorite events to be held throughout this coming Christmas Season.

The rink will be open November  through January. The setup includes a seasonal outdoor ice rink with a canopy top covering in Downtown Denison. We welcome skaters throughout the region to our venue, and our local businesses offer a unique holiday shopping experience to top off your holiday excursion. With the covering over the rink, the rink is open rain or shine and will only close as a safety precaution if lightening is detected within a 10-mile radius of the structure.
