The Twin Cities has SO many unique holiday festivities happening all season long! As we go into the last weekend before Christmas, TSSG wanted to share some of our favorite events happening from the cities to the suburbs. This year we encourage you to get out there, support MN local businesses and don't just stay home for the holidays!


Looking to adventure out of the city? Excelsior now has The Northern Express! A fully immersive experience into the North Pole. See Santa's house, visit his reindeer in the stables, find last minute gifts at the elf's village market, or just take a stroll through the Christmas Tree forest with a warm beverage. There are so many different things to do that are sure to get you in the Christmas spirit! Check out the link below for more details and tickets!

A staple of the Holiday Season in Minneapolis, the Holidazzle is BACK! Although it still looks a little different this year as public health is still their top priority, there will still be a ton of great activities for families and friends of all ages. With amusement rides, shopping, amazing local food trucks and more, don't miss this classic (and free) Holiday event!

Looking for something new or virtual? Check out the celebration of the Winter Solstice! The Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, is honored by many traditions as a time of reflection on the year that is ending and celebration of the new year coming. This is an online even and zoom information can be found at the link below!

Let's not forget about the incredible light display at the MN Landscape Arboretum! If this isn't on your Holiday Bucket List, it should be! With some of the most incredible light displays in the state, this is absolutely a must do. While you stroll through this winter wonderland, you'll hear live holiday music, enjoy a glass of wine or cocoa, and cozy up by the bonfire to roast marshmallows. More information and tickets, can be found at the link below.
