People skating on the ice during Skating on the Square.

Spartanburg’s open-air ice rink is in the heart of the city at Morgan Square, and it is open November 20, 2020, through January 18, 2021.

Morgan Square is surrounded by Church Street, Dunbar, and West Main Streets.

The cost for admission is $10 per person. This price includes the skate rental. Want to skate all day long? You can if you want to! You can skate, leave, and come back later in the day – all you have to do is get your hand stamped before leaving.

Here in Spartanburg, you know we can have some 70+ degree days in November and December. But even if it’s warm, organizers recommend wearing gloves – because the ice is COLD if you should be “on it” — meaning you took a tumble. Of course on cold days, you should wear coat, hat, scarves, and gloves. And remember, YOU MUST WEAR SOCKS.
