I’m excited to share that NYC’s celebrated Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park, featuring NYC’s only free-admission skating rink, holiday market and delicious food offerings, is returning for its 20th season, Friday, October 29, 2021 – Sunday, March 6, 2022.
While still proceeding with an abundance of caution for the safety of its guests, Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park is thrilled to be welcoming back its most popular attractions this winter season:
The Rink: the only free-admission ice skating rink in NYC will be open daily. The Rink is completely outdoors, and skate time and rentals can be reserved in advance online. New skate reservation dates will be released on a rolling basis throughout the season.
Masks are encouraged, and Bryant Park is continuing to implement additional cleaning protocols throughout the day to ensure high-touch surfaces and shared rental equipment are sanitized and safe for use.
The Holiday Shops by Urban space: the open-air holiday market will be open daily through January 2, 2022, and will feature over 170 new and returning merchants.
Small Business Spotlight presented by Bank of America: four New York City minority-owned small businesses with annual revenue of $1 million or less will have the chance to showcase their products in a rent-free booth, made possible by Bank of America, as part of this season’s Holiday Shops.
Last year’s featured small businesses were sustainable candle and soap company TREE*STAR, Brooklyn-based bakeshop Annie Mae’s Bakery, custom-designed hat shop Harlem’s Heaven Hats, and Tibet Tree of Life, a business selling incense, shawls, and other products made in the Himalayan region.
This year’s featured small businesses will be announced shortly.
The Lodge by Prime Video: a covered, outdoor après skate escape where visitors can cozy up with a festive cocktail, enjoy delicious food, watch the ice skaters or admire the tree.
Over the coming days, Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park will announce this year’s holiday market merchants as well as dining options and upcoming seasonal programming.
It was great to see many pop up stores doing business and many people skating in the rink at Bryant park and many people walking around enjoying the festivities. See more in our World Liberty TV Travel and Tourism channels and blogs by clicking here.
