Downtown Ice is not only located in a spectacular setting — the
DTICE13-14Flierv10Circle of Palms between the Fairmont Hotel and San Jose Museum of Art.  The South Bay’s largest seasonal outdoor skating rink, produced by the San Jose Downtown Association, has the coolest partners – Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation and Hawaiian Airlines.

Our goal is to take care of all customers and make this ice rink the best skating experience anywhere.

If you’ve never been to the ice rink, here’s what to expect, a step-by-step guide to ensure a cool Downtown Ice experience.

Downtown Ice is part of San Jose’s Downtown for the Holidays traditions

Downtown Ice is located in the core of the South Bay’s leading winter attractions and family friendly activities, which include the traditional Christmas in the Park and Winter Wonderland. Park once and make a day of it in downtown San Jose: dine, dance, laugh, and enjoy the spirit of the season swirling about you.

Parking is affordable and easy. Find $5 flat-rate parking after 6 p.m., seven nights a week in city-owned lots and garages.  After 6 p.m. and all day Saturday, receive validation from a participating business and park the rest of the night for FREE in city-owned garages.  Visit for more information.
