Bellevue Downtown Ice Rink Celebrates 25 Years, Opens November 18
Holiday ice skating returns for 2022-2023 season

Building on a 25-year tradition, the Bellevue Downtown Ice Rink presented by Symetra returns to the scenic Bellevue Downtown Park on November 18 through January 8, 2023. Advance tickets are available at Walk-up tickets are limited, so visitors are strongly encouraged to purchase online in advance. 

Produced by the Bellevue Downtown Association (BDA), the ice rink is open daily, including holidays, and features over 9,000 square feet of real ice, a covered viewing area, on-site concessions, free parking, and more. Whether it's a family holiday ice skating tradition, a friendly get-together, or a celebratory outing, the Bellevue Downtown Ice Rink invites you to be part of the 2022-2023 season!

“The Bellevue Downtown Ice Rink brings the magic of open-air ice skating to visitors throughout the Puget Sound region,” BDA President Patrick Bannon said. “No matter your age or skill level, we encourage all communities to skate with us throughout the season.”

Since 1997, The Eastside’s largest ice skating experience has brought the same caliber of holiday cheer seen throughout the decades—even for those new to the ice. The season returns with free skate lessons for all ages on select evenings, courtesy of Microsoft. Visitors will also enjoy our special event days like Ugly Sweater Skate, Apple Cup Skate Day, and more.  Join us in making magical memories and celebrating the most wonderful time of year in the heart of Bellevue!
