GLOW Holiday Festival is returning to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds this holiday season. Read on to find out how to get GLOW Holiday Festival Discount Tickets!
Our oh-so-lovely weather here in Minnesota typically means we spend a lot of time inside during the fall and winter. But sometimes you just need to bundle up and get outside to see some amazing sights!
GLOW Holiday Festival at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds is returning this year! While last year you experienced the holiday lights from the comfort of the car, this year’s show will be a walk-through experience, not a drive-thru one.
GLOW Holiday Festival will run for 46 consecutive nights from November 18, 2021 through January 2, 2022.
This is an outdoor event with a limited hourly capacity. Masks are required in indoor spaces for all guests age 3 and up – this includes entry/ticket scanning and restroom use. Masks are encouraged at the outdoor displays, but not required.
- Tremendous Tree – A 60 ft. tree with moving lights and imagery
- Santa Land – Includes the 20 ft. original display from the 1960’s-era Dayton’s Nicollet Mall store
- Gingerbread House – A family-friendly holiday light spectacular
- GLOW Palace – Take in spectacular views of the Fairgrounds in this three-story lighted palace
- sELFie Plaza – An area dedicated to capturing your best selfies and family photos
- Bright Bikes – An interactive tree powered by riding the bicycles
- Reindeer Run – Navigate your way through a twinkling holiday maze
- and LOTS more!
Besides seeing the sights, you can also purchase a selection of Minnesota State Fair food favorites at the State Fair Food Court!
All tickets must be purchased online in advance. Note that entry is timed for every 30 minutes.
Each night benefits a community charity which will receive $1 from the sale of each ticket on their specified night.
