Brenton skating plaza

Ice skating is closed for the season!

Thank you for making it another great year of ice skating in the heart of Downtown DSM. Please visit the Brenton calendar for more information on concerts and events during The Canopy season!

From November to March, Brenton Skating Plaza offers people of all ages the chance to ice skate in the open air, amid the snowflakes and under the stars in Downtown Des Moines (DSM). Additionally, Brenton Skating Plaza transforms into The Canopy from May to October, a unique and fun venue for weddings, concerts and events.
