Event Schedule

Holidazzle Village, Holidazzle, Santa's Workshop, Minneapolis, Downtown Minneapolis

Each night, the Holidazzle Village featuring the Minneapolis Holiday Market will have something new and unique to explore. Stroll down Nicollet Mall and take in all the festivities with you and yours. Perhaps you’ll sing along with the festive bands and choirs performing on the half hour. Or maybe you’ll stop and take a selfie with one of the iconic Holidazzle light bulbs walking the streets. If you’re in need of a good tale, catch one of our story time experiences being told on stage. We’ll have ice skating where you can enjoy nights under the skyline, and we’ll have live reindeer on hand spreading holiday cheer.

But that’s not all. On specific nights, you’ll find incredible activities that make each trip to Holidazzle Village unique and special:

  • Nov. 28: Opening Night Fireworks (6:30 PM)

  • Dec. 6-7: Glass Blowing Demonstrations (beginning at 3:30 PM)

  • Dec. 13-14: Dog Sledding Exhibitions (beginning at 3:30 PM)

  • Dec. 20-21: Ice Skating on Nicollet Mall (beginning at 3 PM)

All the while, the Minneapolis Holiday Market at Peavey Plaza will be open and provide additional fun. Enjoy an incredible experience of an open-air, European-style market with the Holidazzle Village lights and the Minneapolis skyline as backdrops. Stop by Downtown Minneapolis’ first and only Holiday Carousel and take in the sights and smells wafting in the air as you ride along. We’ll have 30 festively-decorated huts with international and local vendors offering traditional and unique items like candy treats, ornaments, candles, handcrafted gifts, mulled wine, beer, brats and more. Some of the specialty stops include:

  • Gluhwein

  • Minnesota Harvest

  • Kathe Wohlfahrt ornaments
