Wintervention 2019


Published 01 July 2020


As Canberra braced itself for a frosty winter in 2019, we staged another Wintervention.

There was no need to spend winter indoors when Canberra’s only open-air ice rink returned to Civic from Friday 5 July to Sunday 21 July.

More than just skating – Wintervention bursted with activities including markets, ice shows, a life-size snow globe and live entertainment that all ages enjoyed.

Local food and makers’ markets took place on the opening weekend (5 – 7 July).

Skating at Wintervention was held every day from 10am to 8pm with scheduled performances from the ‘Stars on Ice’ on Fridays and weekends. Hot drinks and snacks were available day and night.

You could listen to live music and be entertained every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the event.
