The Bank of America Winter Village 2020-2021 Season

I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. I cannot believe the end of October is here but I am happy to tell you about the opening of the Bank of American Winter Village at Bryant Park October 30th. I am so pleased they are going to open, this will be the first year that I have not visited in a long time. It is truly a magical place, as I often spend Christmas Eve here enjoying the wonderful hot chocolate and lovely vendors. I love finding unique gift items here for friends and family, as well as myself! 

If you are able to visit the city this holiday, please give this place a visit. You will not be disappointed and they are taking very good measures to ensure your health and safety. 

Information from their website is below: 

Smaller, safer: We’ve reduced the number of kiosks and reconfigured the layout to avoid congestion and allow for more spacious walkways. Staff will wear face coverings, make hand sanitizer available, and conduct contactless payments.

Park safety: Handwashing stations are available throughout the park. Visitors must wear a face covering at the Holiday Shops and maintain social distance while circulating through the park. Be safe, be kind, and please heed all park and Holiday Shops’ directives.

New York City's only free admission ice skating rink, which is located in the park, is scheduled to return this year. Tickets, however, must be reserved online in advance. (Reservations are expected to come online in the coming days.)

Health and Safety

New this Year: Ice skating at Winter Village is now a fully outdoor experience, and the Holiday Shops have a reconfigured layout with fewer shops to allow for more spacious walkways. At The Rink we are also implementing:

Enhanced cleaning protocol: high contact surfaces will be sanitized throughout the day.
Contactless payment: advance online booking is now required for all rink reservations.
Skate sessions: to reduce capacity on The Rink and give more visitors a chance to skate, skate time will be booked per timed session.

Masks: all visitors must wear face coverings over their noses and mouths for the duration of their visit to The Rink.

This season, ​The Lodge has transformed into The Lodge Deck, a completely outdoor experience.
Visitors can still enjoy rinkside eats and drinks with a stellar view of skaters and the Christmas Tree.


Face coverings are required unless patrons are seated at a table.
Contactless ordering will be available.
To enjoy food and drink at The Lodge Deck, you must be seated at a table.
High-touch surfaces will be disinfected throughout the day.
Hand-washing stations and hand sanitizer can be found throughout the park.
We ask all visitors to the park to please maintain social distance from other guests.

October 30th, 2020 - January 3rd, 2021
Monday - Friday, 11am - 8pm
Saturday - Sunday 10am - 8pm
