Winter Jam NYC

This free winter sports festival in Central Park features skiing, snowboarding, sledding, Arctic golf, shuffleboard, and more.

The activities available will depend on the weather. If there’s no snow, snow-makers may be used, but those aren’t very effective at higher temperatures. Frozen ice activities such as an ice slide and ice sculpture carving provide entertainment and activities for just about any chilly weather.

The event also includes music at the bandshell, and food will be available at a Taste NY Winter Market/Warming Hut.

The event is open to the public and admission is free.
