In case you haven’t heard, one of the largest international figure skating events, 2023 Skate America, is being held in Allen! From October 20-22, the Credit Union of Texas Event Center will be buzzing with action as top figure skaters and ice dancers put their skills to the test, ending with the fantastic Prevagen Skating Spectacular. The Spectacular features the medalists from each discipline, as well as other specially invited skaters from the competition. During the show, skaters have a chance to show their creativity and unique style by performing routines separate from their competition programs to music of their own choice, with no judges. The Prevegan Skating Spectacular is a great evening for the whole family to see all skating disciplines in the same sitting in a fun, high energy environment!
Skate America competitors will include past Olympic medalists and up-and-comers hoping to qualify for the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milano-Cortina, Italy. You won’t want to miss the chance to be a part of this international event.
Skating enthusiasts will recognize the event headliners, reigning U.S. champions Madison Chock, Evan Bates, Isabeau Levito and Ilia Malinin. Based on their accolades, a great show is to be expected. Collin County local, Amber Glenn will also take the ice representing Dallas Figure Skating Club. Glenn recently won SKATING Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Award, an achievement that will bring skating fans from her home club and from all across the country out to cheer her on. There will also be meet and greet opportunities with 2022 Olympians Ashley Cain and Mariah Bell.
The Credit Union of Texas Event Center is close to all the best food, lodging and activities that Allen has to offer. Grab dinner nearby at Kelly’s at the Village, Velvet Taco, or Numero 28. Then head back to your room at Courtyard by Marriott or Hampton Inn and Suites. In the morning, Armor Coffee Co. is a great place to fuel up for the day. If you have time between events check out Exit 4 Escape Rooms and Topgolf to add a little extra fun to your stay. All three days of competition have events you won’t want to miss – you might as well make a weekend of it!
