Newark Winter Village, a much-loved holiday tradition, returns for the season to transform downtown Newark into a winter wonderland.
The festive event at Mulberry Commons Park, located just outside the Prudential Center, will run from Nov. 25 to Jan. 31, 2023. Hours are 3 - 8 pm Wednesdays through Fridays, and 1 - 8 pm Saturdays and Sundays.
Visitors of all ages can enjoy ice skating, Go-Karts, various games and activities, an open-air holiday marketplace featuring local vendors, and cozy heated private igloos to enjoy hot cocoa and treats.
There will also be many “Instagram-worthy” photo-ops available throughout the winter village.
In addition to fun winter activities, visitors can shop in the stylish open-air holiday marketplace with wares from local vendors. There will be food and sweet treats to purchase, as well as hot cocoa to warm you up after a few trips around the ice rink.
Admission is free, but reservations and tickets are required for ice skating and private igloos. Reservations can be made online, and ticket fees are as follows:
• Ice Skating: $15 per adult (age 17 and up), $10 per child (under age 17)
• Igloo Rentals: $40: 60-minute reservation
A lineup of special events and activities is planned throughout the season. Stay up to date by following Newark Winter Village on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
