From here on out Chicago light shows illuminate all corners of the city, an abundance of ice rinks offer unforgettable skating experiences, and winter wonderlands emerge anywhere from ritzy rooftops to neighborhood bars.
Now Gallagher Way’s Winterland experience has joined the array of festive events in Chicago, offering another year of family-friendly fun both at Gallagher Way and inside historic Wrigley Field.
Even better, free admission is being offered inside Wrigley Field at Gallagher Way’s Winterland this week. Here’s how to get in:
On December 7th and 8th, use the code GIFT23 to purchase tickets.
Running through Sunday, January 7, 2024, Winterland’s beloved rides and attractions at Gallagher Way include Tilt-A-Whirl, Carousel, Infield Express train, the Umbrella Ride, Flying Dragons, Teacups, and The Edge.
Outside at Christkindlmarket, guests can ride the new 40-foot Ferris wheel and see the dazzling giant Christmas tree.
Once again this year a Santa’s Workshop experience runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from November 24 through December 23 where guests can take photos with Santa.
Wreath-making workshops in partnership with Indigo & Violet Studio will take place on Saturday, December 2, and Sunday, December 3, offering guests the chance to learn how to make a fragrant, one-of-a-kind holiday decoration.
The on-field Maker’s Mark Chalets are also back, providing perfect private cabins for groups of up to 20 who want to enjoy the experience in style with a warm fireplace, customizable beverage offerings, and indoor and outdoor seating.
Meanwhile, new private igloos take up to six guests to an island getaway with themed drinks. Both chalets and igloos can be reserved via Tock.
Admission to Gallagher Way and Christkindlmarket’s Wrigleyville location is free for all, but tickets are required for access to the Wrigley Field portion of Winterland and cost $5 per person for anybody over the age of 2.
Attraction pricing starts at $4 a ticket though special group packs offer 10 tickets for $36 and 20 tickets for $69.
Gallagher Way Winterland will be open from 3 p.m. – 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Please note that Winterland will be closed on Christmas Day and operate with shorter hours on other days like Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.
