Knoxville's Holidays on Ice

Facebook/KnoxvillesHolidaysonIceFacebook.com / KnoxvillesHolidaysonIce

The City of Knoxville’s annual Holidays on Ice has been adapted to safely accommodate participants and reduce the risks of spreading COVID-19 during the holiday season.
*Face coverings are required, practice physical distancing and stay home if you are sick.

Holidays on Ice will be moving to the Civic Coliseum for the 2020/21 season. Opening day will be December 11!

We are excited to still be able to bring you some winter holiday fun and look forward to another great season!

Peppermint PandaWhether with family, friends or on a date you'll love skating in Downtown Knoxville on the same ice where the Ice Bears play hockey!

Join us at Holidays on Ice to make memories that will last long after the holidays are over.

Enjoy skating on a 180 ft rink while listening to music every night.

There may even be a panda sighting by our Holidays on Ice Mascot, 'Peppermint Panda'!

The rink will be open December 11, 2020 through January 3, 2021 


Holidays on Ice is located inside the Civic Coliseum at 500 Howard Baker Jr. Ave, 37915. You can reach the Ice Rink by phone at 865-215-4423. 


The ice rink is located inside the coliseum so weather is not a factor this year. Something fun to do even if it's raining outside!

We accept cash, Visa and Mastercard.
