Holiday and PD Day Programming

Holiday and PD Day Programming

The City of Greater Sudbury is offering drop-in activities on select holidays and school professional development (PD) days. 

Some drop-in activities are free, and others have a fee for individuals and families. 


Drop by one of our free skating days. All times and locations are subject to change based on events and tournament requirements.  

Skaters must attend the appropriate program to ensure all participants' safety (for example, parents and tots must not skate with adult skaters). 

Only Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved skating aids are allowed on the ice surface. 

For your safety, please read our Public Skating Rules of Conduct. 

On-ice capacity is limited to 50 people and is first-come, first-serve.
