In 2014, an ice rink was installed on the field at Dodger Stadium. The Kings and Ducks played an NHL game there, the rink was dismantled, and Dodger Stadium reverted to its traditional use.

In 2021, an ice rink is coming back to Dodger Stadium. This time, you don’t have to be an NHL player to skate there.

On Monday, the Dodgers unveiled plans for a winter festival at the ballpark, in which fans can skate on a rink in the outfield, visit Santa in the bullpen, take in holiday light and music shows, and immerse themselves in “interactive experiences worthy of posting on social media.” Fans can also eat, drink and shop.


The Dodgers tendered qualifying offers to Corey Seager and Chris Taylor before Sunday’s deadline but chose not to make one to Clayton Kershaw.

Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is required, in accordance with city guidelines. The Dodgers “strongly encourage” mask wearing, the team said in its announcement.

The festival opens Nov. 26. Information:
