The Northern Lights Festival has something for people of all ages to enjoy; chances to eat and drink, enjoy our 25,000+ sq. ft. light park, shop in the Mini MN Christmas Market, countless photo ops, make-and-take experiences and more.

The festival will conclude with a Christmas Concert to remember on December 17th.
