Skate With Us!

May we suggest a slightly safer option?

The Capitol Hill Ice Rink opens today! Now through December 24th from 11AM-10PM daily you can lace up your skates in Cal Anderson Park and celebrate the holidays with Caffe Vita. At 4:30 today there will be a special opening ceremony, including a visit from Mayor McGinn and songs from the Northwest School’s a capella choir.

While the ice may be borrowed, the festivities are all local, with hot dogs from Dante’s, neighborhood sponsors like the Elliott Bay Book Company, and of course, Caffe Vita.

Not only will we be selling hot cocoa, cider, coffee, tea, and kombucha every day at the rink, you can also pick up sweet treats, whole beans and hats! After snapping up some Vita merch drop by the ice rink’s complimentary gift wrapping table and spread the love. Or, you know, keep them for yourself. It’s cold out there!

Tickets are available for cash purchase at the rink or you can buy them at our Capitol Hill cafe ($12 for adults, $6 for kids, including skates).

For more information, go here or just head over to Cal Anderson! We hope to see you there.
