ArtsQuest has announced that tickets to its newest holiday tradition –The Ice Rink at SteelStacks, presented by Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital – are now on sale. Located at the base of the blast furnaces on the SteelStacks campus, the authentic outdoor rink will be open daily, including holidays, beginning Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2022 through Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023.

“Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the Ice Rink at SteelStacks for the 2022 year,” Richard Levy, Vice President, Marketing and Public Affairs, Lehigh Valley Health Network said. “As the region’s only children’s hospital, we are dedicated to keeping the kids in our community out on the ice and helping them get back on it if they ever need care.”

In partnership with Rink Management Services Corporation, The Ice Rink at SteelStacks will feature fresh ice maintained throughout the day to deliver an outdoor skating experience like no other across the Lehigh Valley. This new attraction will complement ArtsQuest’s beloved Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem, presented by Univest Financial®, which will return for its 30th year beginning Friday, Nov. 18, 2022.

“The Ice Rink at SteelStacks is the ideal addition to our campus during the holiday season,” said Ryan Hill, Senior Director of Programming at ArtsQuest. “There will be music-based theme nights, mascot skating, and beautiful decorations that will serve as the backdrop to a whole new batch of great memories made next to the blast furnaces.”
