The Minneapolis Holiday Boutique Is Almost Here

Nov 5, 2018, 17:35 PM

Attention all retail therapy lovers, the shopping event of the season is almost upon us and we are here for it! Head down to U.S. Bank Stadium November 9-11 to tackle your holiday gift list in one fell swoop. You will find 250 exhibitors down on the field with an array of unique, high-quality items including the latest styles, trends, jewelry, gifts, and gourmet foods.

New this year is Made in the Midwest Artisan Area, featuring custom-made gifts by regional artisan designers. Read up on who will be there here. On Sunday, Dez from KS95 will be hanging out and crafting from noon-2 p.m.  There will be DIY activities for families and Mrs. Claus will be on-site handing out cookies.

You’ll also want to check out Doorway to the Holidays: Designer Rooms & Mannequin Display, sponsored by Renewal by Andersen. You will delight in these holiday-themed rooms displaying home and holiday décor. Christopher Straub has once again designed mannequins to accent each room’s theme.

A perennial fan favorite, the Festival of Trees is back with twelve creatively decorated trees and wreaths.  Donated by individuals, companies and civic groups, all the items are up for sale via a silent auction. The Minneapolis Fire Department is behind this great feature, where 100% of the sale proceeds will benefit Operation Warm: Coats for Kids Foundation.

This year’s Holiday Boutique has so many activities, so let’s discuss all the fun to be had on Friday, November 9:

  • Who doesn’t love Elizabeth Ries of Twin Cities Live? That’s right, no one! Watch her anchor the show live at U.S. Bank on the field at 3 p.m.
  • And be sure to stick around, as Falen of KDWB will be hosting Ladies Night Out (and giving away prizes!) from 5-7 p.m. The fun continues from 7-9 p.m. with a DJ – and more prizes!
  • In addition to that, you can take part in Fred Astaire Dance Studio performances and dance lessons from 5-7pm, and open dance from 7-8pm at booth #1217.
  • If it’s your thing, be sure to head to the Mirror Me Perfect booth #638 and get your photo taken with Sexy Santa.

As you can see, Friday will be rockin’! Stay tuned for our next post that lays out what to expect on Saturday & Sunday!
