The Northern Express

The Northern Express is an immersive holiday experience that brings cheer to the whole family. Feel like you’ve escaped to the North Pole and explore Santa’s workshop, kitchen and more, meet reindeer, Christmas llamas and Clydesdales, take pictures with Santa, and get lost in the forest. Eat, drink, shop and be merry! The market will have exceptional local makers, decadent treats and warming beverages from neighborhood purveyors. There will be a collection for new, unused toys for Children’s Minnesota throughout the multi-weekend event.
