City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival
Meet at the Theodore Wirth Trailhead at 1 PM
What to Photograph:
- Snow Sculpture Contest
- Various Loppet Events
- One Dog Loppet Race
- Broomball Tournament
The four-weekend event is now home to more than 20 unique shanties and over 150 artists and performers. The icy lake is transformed into a vibrant village, full of fantastical structures, bustling with musicians and performers of all kinds. Visitors of all ages embrace the cold Minnesotan winter to explore the shanties, watch performances, interact with artists, and create art of their own.
There is a $10-$20 suggested donation (no one will be turned away) that is used to help fund the project from year to year.
