Dodger Stadium will be filled with holiday cheer at this year’s Dodgers Holiday Festival in the newly renovated Centerfield Plaza featuring interactive experiences, larger-than-life holiday scenes and light installations. 

For the first time ever, the stadium has an illuminated, open-air ice skating experience constructed across the outfield. The 80’ x 60’ ice rink will run 30-minute sessions throughout each event date. Santa Claus will be landing his sleigh in the bullpen of the third-oldest ballpark in the major leagues this winter. Make reservations for one-hour time slots for professional photos with Santa and the kids. Guests will be able to access their pictures digitally with an option to add printed photos or keepsakes.
