The holiday season is officially upon us. Crisp winter air, crackling fires and the scent of fresh pine. Here are a few of the happenings around the Twin Cities in the next few months to indulge in the spirit of the most magical time of the year. Cheers!

Wed, Nov 22nd
Want the freshest of fresh for your Thanksgiving spread? Head to the St Paul’s Farmer’s Market from 10:00am-4:00pm and get the most delicious ingredients for a highly instagrammable feast.
A Christmas Carol at The Guthrie
Nov 14th-Dec 30th
If you have yet to experience the iconic play at The Guthrie, make this your year to see “A Christmas Carol” at Minneapolis’s most celebrated theater. Each year they take a unique spin on the classic (now in its’ 43rd year), so no two years are alike. We suggest splurging for good seats, you will not be disappointed.
Winter Market at 50th and France, Edina
November 25th– December 16th
We love to promote local shopping, and there is no better area than 50th and France in Edina. Shop for gifts from local artisans with a new theme each Saturday in the Edina 5-0 Mall. Make a day of it even and pop in to one of the fitness boutiques for a class, enjoy brunch, and shop to your heart’s content while supporting local businesses. Select dates include strolling carolers to really set the mood.
Ice Skating in St Paul
November 18th – February 11th
Skate in an urban setting with the historic Landmark Center in the background. Rent skates and even participate in free lessons. Be sure to check the schedule so you don’t collide with broomball players.
Inspired by a European tradition, head to one of the local Christmas Markets for food, fun and gifts galore.
