Just when you thought the Christmas Capital of Texas® couldn’t get any bigger, Grapevine is pleased to announce that, for the first time, the city will unveil an all-new attraction for the 2022 holiday season—a 4,500-square-foot outdoor ice-skating rink on Historic Main Street.

Visitors to the Christmas Capital of Texas® will enjoy the Texas-sized ice rink that will be located on Peace Plaza in front of Grapevine Main Station, home to Harvest Hall. The towering live Christmas tree will remain in its location on the plaza, as well as the larger-than-life ornaments visitors have come to know and love each season, such as the giant reindeer, Victorian coaches and more.

Mark your calendars and get ready to glide across the ice when the rink opens to the public on November 18. Everyone will have plenty of time to enjoy all the festivities and work on their triple lutz thanks to a schedule that will span 52 days through January 8! The rink will quickly become a must-visit winter activity for all ages, and adding to the list of more than 1,400 attractions and events Grapevine hosts over 40 days during the holiday season. As home to the Christmas Capital of Texas®, it only makes sense that the new, exciting attraction would be placed on Grapevine’s Historic Main Street.

The rink’s location in front of Grapevine Main Station is adjacent to the Historic Cotton Belt Depot, from which the highly anticipated North Pole Express® will be departing. Tickets for the North Pole Express go on sale Tuesday, July 26 at 10 a.m. Visitors will be able to plan their holiday festivities in advance with a trip aboard the North Pole Express, holiday shopping along Main Street, comforting eats and warm drinks at the many restaurants and winery-tasting rooms, and a chance to hit the ice on the new outdoor rink.

More information about the rink and ticket prices will be released soon!
