Winterfest Is Still in Full Swing in Philly! Do Not Miss Out on This Seasonal Event

Since 1994, Blue Cross RiverRink has been Philadelphia's winter tradition. This year, we're celebrating 25 years in Philadelphia, and 25 years in partnership with Independence Blue Cross. Visit this season for special events, great giveaways, and a glide down memory lane.

Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest is open seven days a week including all holidays from November 23, 2018 through March 3, 2019. This seasonal winter park includes a fairytale winter landscape, world-class ice skating rink, beautiful lighting, outdoor seating area with fire pits, cozy warming cabins, Franklin Fountain Confectionery Cabin, Kids Lodge and arcade, and a chalet-inspired Lodge with food and beverages from Garces and Chickie's and Pete's. Come skate with friends and family, bring the team for a special event, or have a party in one of the cozy cabins or Lodge.

Blue Cross RiverRink, now in its 25th year as an outdoor ice skating rink and sixth season as Winterfest, is the centerpiece of this magical winter wonderland. The regulation-sized rink offers daily public skating sessions, skate rentals, sharpening, and free season-long events and entertainment. The past 25 years have been made possible by its founding and title sponsor Independence Blue Cross.

The Lodge features a cozy ski-chalet inspired atmosphere with a clear view of the ice skating rink and a heated wraparound porch for the ultimate in Waterfront luxury. Inside, The Lodge is furnished with comfortable couches, tons of gathering tables, electric fireplaces, and decorative touches that create a warm and inviting space. On special event nights, the Lodge transforms into a dance floor for Latin Nights, Dance Hall, and throwback DJs.
