Skating At Sydney Festival 2019
The CBD's winter wonderland returns.
May 22, 2019
Sydney winters mightn't be known for their ice and snow; however, that doesn't mean you can't slide across a frozen surface in the centre of the city. From June 28 to July 21, St Mary's Cathedral forecourt will become a winter wonderland thanks to the return of the Skating At Sydney Festival.
With the event back for another year, all of the frosty fabulousness Sydneysiders know and love will return to the CBD. It's the next best thing to heading to Europe when it's oh-so-cool, just without the bone-chilling, teeth-chattering cold.
The lineup of events includes not only regular ice skating, but a 'date and skate' night each Tuesday, plus a 90s and 00s-themed evening every Thursday from 5pm, which will see you skating to disco and R&B bangers. Both nights will feature $10 espresso martinis.
Entry to the area is free, but you'll have to pay for all of the fun stuff, with the fest open from 10am–9pm Monday to Wednesday, 10am–10pm on Thursday to Sundays.
