25 Jun 2021 to 11 Jul 2021 Annual Event

Lace up your skates. It’s the most winterful time of year! Canberra’s most coveted winter attraction, Wintervention is back for 2021, turning Civic Square into an open-air ice-skating arena from Friday 25 June until Sunday 11 July for the school holiday period.

Take a moment to enjoy the true joys of winter and embrace the frost around entertainment, activities, food, and market stalls. The rink is open 10am to 8pm from Sundays to Thursdays, and 10am to 9pm Fridays and Saturdays. Visitors are required to book in for their skate sessions.

The markets will run across two weekends (Friday 25 to Sunday 27 June and Friday 2 to Sunday 4 July). Stars on Ice will keep the crowds entertained with live performances on Fridays and over the weekend. Throughout the week skate sessions, music performances and hot drinks and food stalls are available.

Whether you’re a skater or a spectator, get down to Civic Square for the ultimate winter fun and capture the season in all its glory at this family-friendly event.
