City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival
The Urban Ski Festival
Minneapolis’s Iconic Celebration of Winter
Please note the important changes for this weekend’s Luminary Loppet and City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival events (Click on the links to view the official statements for each).
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.
Normally a three-day festival, the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival includes the Luminary Loppet, which is the most magical night of winter, a variety of point-to-point Cross-Country Ski Loppets, Freewheel Fat-Tire Bike Loppets, Chuck & Don’s Skijor Loppets, and Askov Finlayson Snowshoe Loppet (both competitive races and non-competitive touring events) through Theodore Wirth Park, and a number of unique events, such as the Next Generation Loppet. And much more.
In 2021, we have made a number of adjustments, and will continue to make changes as needed, to ensure that this year’s festival goers have a safe experience in these pandemic-troubled times. Please review and keep up to date on changes made on our Event Updates/COVID-19 Plan webpage.
