Minneapolis’s Iconic Celebration of Winter
Growing from a once humble cross-country ski race in 2003, the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival has come to be the staple event of winter in the North.
The City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival is a two-day festival that includes the Luminary Loppet, which is the most magical night of winter; a variety of point-to-point Cross-Country Ski, Fat-Tire Bike, Skijor, and Snowshoe events, both competitive races and recreational touring events through Theodore Wirth Park; and a number of unique events, such as the Captain Ken’s Kubb Tournament – plus much more.
Note: All start times are tentative and dependent on weather, registration numbers, course, pandemics and any other possible factors. Final times will be communicated closer to the event and/or at packet pickup.
