Bring your friends and family for some fun on the ice. Fairfax Ice Arena has offered year-round public ice skating since 1973, and was the first indoor ice rink facility in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

We offer special rates for groups of seven or more, skating parties, fundraisers and more.
