Sock Skating Rink 

Skip the skates and enjoy a wintertime tradition not often experienced in the South at Fernbank’s Sock Skating Rink! Slip on your favorite pair of socks and slide around like you're skating across the "ice." 

Helpful Tips 

  • No ice skates needed! Guests will “skate” by sliding around on socks.  
  • Bring your own socks or stop by the Museum Store to purchase a pair.
  • Skaters report that fuzzy polyester socks provide the best ability slide, and cotton socks are least slippery.
  • While the rink is not made of ice, the surface is just as slippery, so please exercise caution.  
  • This seasonal feature is located outdoors on the museum Terrace; dress accordingly.  
  • Face coverings are recommended and the rink is limited to 10 participants at a time.  
  • Handrails and other touch surfaces are cleaned on a regular basis.  

There is no additional fee to enjoy the rink or oversized snow globes, access is included with general museum admission; FREE for members.
