Join in as Oshkosh celebrates the official ribbon cutting for the new Downtown Ice Rink at Riverside Park. Attendees can enjoy ice skating, music, food and drinks. Bring the whole family… this is a FREE community event!
The celebration begins at 5 p.m. with a short presentation and ribbon cutting around 5:45.
Food will include a free smores bar along with chili and hot dogs for sale and a cash bar.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own ice skates. If you don’t have ice skates, don’t worry. Ice skates will be available at the event thanks to a generous donation from ThedaCare.
The ice rink is 100% privately funded. The major donors for this project are the John E. Kuenzl Foundation, Black Teak Properties and The Howard. Numerous other co-investment donors worked to make this project a reality in Oshkosh. The ice rink is a collaboration of the City of Oshkosh, Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel and the Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau.
