5 Minnesota Holiday Activities
While the snow is here to stay there are still cool things to do in the winter, especially around the twin cities. If you are looking for a couple of holiday things to do, I got a list for you.
Holiday Exhibition at American Swedish Institute
Now through January 8th, the American Swedish Institute kicks off its 72nd annual holiday celebration. Explore an immersive all-ages holiday installation within the historic Turnblad Mansion, festive holiday events, and educational classes and workshops (plus a secret twist)!
Gingerbread Wonderland at Norway House
Norway House's annual Gingerbread Wonderland display is a collection of models of Twin Cities houses, structures, and buildings, and is open for the public to view during the holiday season until January 8th. General Admission is $10, $5 for Members, and free for kids 12 and under.
Guthrie Theater’s A Christmas Carol
Now until December 31st, you can see Guthrie Theater’s 48th annual production which will repeat last season’s adaptation by Lavina Jadhwani. Noted by Guthrie’s website, in 2021, the Guthrie invested in a new physical production of the family favorite, including new scenic, costume, prop, lighting, and sound designs. So there will be new elements added to this family classic.
Holidays on the Hill at James J. Hill House
Also now until December 31st, you can experience Christmas in 1910 in the James J. Hill House. Admission includes self-guided access to holiday-themed exhibits and a 60-minute guided tour highlighting holiday stories and memories from both the Hill family and their staff as noted by visitstpaul.com. Admission is $18 and free for Kids 4 and under.
Holidazzle in Downtown Minneapolis
The Holidazzle festivities are almost done, but not quite yet. Until December 18th, you are free to visit Holidazzle on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with many things to do. This includes local foods, beverages, and shopping from area small businesses, interactive art installations, kids activities, fire pits, photo ops, and more.
