Looking for some outdoor holiday fun in December somewhere in the Windy City? Welcome to the Jack Frost Winter Village located at 170 North Green Street in Chicago from now until December 31, 2023.

It is not easy to miss this lit-up hotspot that covers two acres in the West Loop. Enter into the east side of the lot and check in at the front. Jack Frost at Fulton Market is very similar to Jack's Pumpkin Pop-Up previously on Le Moyne Street. Several of the activations are refurbished and recycled such as axe throwing along with multiple settings for photograph taking. The team at knows their stuff and has created an interactive environment for everyone.

There is a full-sized rink for ice skating fun, drive a bumper car and check out the ice curling opportunities.

There are seasonal cocktails served up by bartenders and try a boozy hot chocolate if you are still thirsty.

The holiday market is full of crafts and artist renderings. One might even find their favorite gay icon images for purchase at one of the shops.

The premises are open to all ages with two stipulations of being over 18 years old for axe throwing and over 21 years old to purchase alcohol. It would make a perfect destination for group parties with plenty of room and activities to explore.

Jack Frost will cheer up any Grinch entering the premises and make the Yuletide gay each day!

For ticket information and more details visit Guests are allowed to stay as long as they like, but slotted time slots are offered to stagger wait times to a minimum and to keep entry lines moving along.

Saturdays are 12-hour days beginning at 11 a.m. and Sundays opening at 11 a.m. as well with one less hour ending at 10 p.m. Time is running out so make your plans before it's too late!
