About the Oval

Out to Lunch on the Worcester CommonThe Oval in Summer Following a smashing success for the second straight winter skating season, it's time to turn up the heat and turn up the music! It's time to go Out to Lunch at the Oval!

The popular Out to Lunch Summer Concert Series & Farmers' Market kicks off on Thursday, June 19th - running for ten consecutive Thursdays through August 21st. Series will feature a dynamic line up of live entertainment, farmers market, food vendors, crafters, demonstrations and more. View the Worcester Common Oval's Official Website for more information and a lineup of performances!

The skating rink is professionally managed by SMG, the DCU Center's talented management team. The 12,000-square-foot rink, which is 4,000 square feet larger than the size of the Rink at Rockefeller Center, is complete with amenities such as piped-in music, skate rentals, concessions, holiday lights and more, making it a fun and affordable family-friendly activity.
