Wells Fargo WinterSkate in Downtown Saint Paul

Wells Fargo WinterSkate

Visit Saint Paul, the City of Saint Paul and Wells Fargo invite you to experience Wells Fargo WinterSkate, a free, outdoor, artificially-chilled ice skating rink in the heart of downtown Saint Paul.

Wells Fargo WinterSkate is closed for the season.

Skaters are invited to experience the unique urban setting of downtown Saint Paul. Located in the heart of the city, Wells Fargo WinterSkate creates a fun, winter experience for visitors of all ages. The historic Landmark Center creates a beautiful backdrop for the outdoor rink, showcasing Saint Paul’s charming European architecture and old-world ambiance.

We invite you and your whole family to dust off your skates and head to downtown Saint Paul. The outdoor rink will be filled with noontime skaters, after school groups, youth hockey scrimmages and practices, broomball teams, corporate events, and family open skating.
