Winterfest in Cleveland Public Square

Winterfest happens every year in Public Square. This event is known as Cleveland's official holiday season kick-off party. Each year thousands of guests pack The Square to enjoy ice skating in the Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink, great food, a live stage show with song and dance, a fireworks display, and of course the official holiday tree lighting. A stunning holiday lights display shines bright throughout the winter months giving plenty of guests a reason to come back to The Square. Winterfest is one of the largest and most anticipated events to happen in The Square every season. The program is produced by our friends at Downtown Cleveland Alliance. Contact our events team today if your are interested in being involved in Winterfest.


The reimagined Public Square is part of The Group Plan's mission to better connect Public Square, the Malls, and the lakefront.
