Great Skate Winterfest

January 27 - 28
GREAT SKATE 2019 133 200115 225442

January 27-28, 2024

The Great Skate debuted in 2002 as a 24-hour ice skating marathon held at the outdoor Rosa Parks Circle ice rink in downtown Grand Rapids, with every Griffins player and coach skating for at least one hour around the clock with fans. In 2009, the event expanded into a two-day, 34-hour Great Skate Winterfest, with skating, winter sports demonstrations, games and activities as part of a celebration of winter in our city.

This beloved fundraiser for the Griffins Youth Foundation returns on Saturday, Jan. 27 and Sunday, Jan. 28.

The Great Skate Winterfest is presented by the Daniel and Pamella DeVos Foundation and Meijer.
