Downtown Hays Ice Skating Rink

Let's give Hays, Kansas something to really look forward to in 2020!

DHDC would like to turn the Downtown Pavilion into a synthetic ice skating rink for the 2020 Holiday Season but we need your help! In order to bring such a large attraction to our Downtown, we'll need to make a significant investment. We're looking to Hays and the surrounding communities to make it happen.

The rink will be up during the months of November and December. It will provide a safe, entertaining, and recreational activity for people of all ages. No need to bring your own skates... it's all included.

We will recruit other non-profits to run the rink as a fundraising tool for their organization.

It is our intent to recognize donors on a banner at the rink and on our website.

Every amount matters, so please consider making a tax-deductible donation. We thank you in advance for your support of bringing this attraction to The Bricks!

Your Questions Answered:

What about COVID-19? Will this even be possible?
YES! This is an outdoor event and we will be able to limit the number of skaters on the ice.

Will we be charged to skate?
Yes, there will be a fee to skate to help support the non-profits that are running the rink. DHDC will also need to cover the remaining rink expenses. The more money raised now, the fewer fees there will be for skating.

What is the total investment? How much do you need?
The total investment will be just over $35,000. DHDC needs to have at least half-committed before investing in such a large purchase.

Can my business sponsor?
YES! Please call 785.621.4171 if your business would like to sponsor.

** Purchasers will not receive any type of product for their donation. This is considered a tax-deductible donation to Downtown Hays Development Corporation. **

** If enough funds are not raised to bring this attraction to Downtown, the funds raised here will instead be used to purchase new welcome banners for Main Street. **
