Holidazzle creates a community gathering place and holiday destination for people of all ages to come together and celebrate winter in Downtown Minneapolis. This year’s Holidazzle features stories highlighting local people, products and places that showcase the food scene, art district, park system, active lifestyle, local entertainers and community groups that make our city and our region unique and special.
Minneapolis-centric vendors provide options for prepared and packaged food, beverages and unique gift and craft items. This year’s programming lineup will include the outdoor skating rink, visits from Santa Claus, musical performances from bands and choirs, weekly movies featuring holiday classics, themed days, giveaways, surprise and delight moments and more.
Heat up and grab a beverage in our warming house, then continue your trek testing out some of Minnesota’s finest products. Vikings, moose, and abominable snow men alike are all welcome. Stroll through the festive lights and follow the savory smells as you enjoy your holiday experience in the heart of the city. Join us for the Opening Ceremony on Friday, November 24 at 6:30 p.m.—an event that will include a fireworks show at Loring Park, holiday music, brief comments from our local leaders and the lighting of the Holidazzle tree.
