Inner Harbor Ice Rink, Christmas Village and other holiday and seasonal activities resume, bringing energy and excitement to Downtown Baltimore


Over the years, the opening of the Inner Harbor Ice Rink has signaled the start of the holiday season in Baltimore City. On November 12th, Waterfront Partnership will be joined by Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott and leaders from Visit Baltimore, Downtown Partnership, and PNC Bank for the grand opening of the 2021-2022 season and to celebrate all that Downtown Baltimore and beyond has to offer this winter – including the return of the Christmas Village in Baltimore (Nov. 25-Dec. 24), the 50th Annual Monument Lighting in Mt. Vernon (Dec. 5), Candy Lane in Center Plaza (Nov. 20-Dec. 23), Baltimore Restaurant Week (January), Dollar or Less Days (January), an extended Ravens season and the many opportunities for shopping and dining.

The Inner Harbor Ice Rink returns this year thanks to the support of PNC Bank.

As in past years, Waterfront Partnership will offer free ice-skating and skate rental to the first 100 children.
