For Guests

What To Expect

The MN Christmas Market is the ultimate celebration of local businesses each and every holiday season. After being greeted by a friendly face at the door and paying that whopping $1 entry fee, you'll be met by somewhere between 40-70 vendors at each of our events. The atmosphere is always one of fun and energy, as there are opportunities to eat, drink, and listen to live music throughout our venues.

The best part of the day: 7% of all shopping gets invested into our charity that is fighting for kids in the Twin Cities. Our shoppers are investing in local small businesses, as well as local kids... all at once.

VIP Passports

This year we're excited to introduce the new VIP Passports at each event.

VIP Passports are full of savings tailored to each event.

The VIP Passports include:

  • Entry fee included
  • MN Christmas Market shopping bag (limited to the first 250 passports sold at each event)
  • Discounts from 20+ small businesses at the event equivalent to hundreds of dollars of savings
  • In-store savings available at all stores of our sponsor, Schuler Shoes, across the state.
  • Jump the waiting line to get in... Special line for VIP Passport pick up

All customers who buy a VIP Passport will be able to pick them up will-call at the event and the passports are valid both days of the event! Want to grab one while they're still available? Get one HERE. Supplies are limited.
