The city of Winona, WINONArts, the Boathouse Restaurant, and Winona entrepreneur Alisha Christiano are teaming together to return a holiday tradition to Winona: the Winona Holiday Market on Saturday, December 14, from 12-4 p.m. on the Levee Park Plaza and Patio.
Like the wonderful European and Metropolitan-style Christmas markets in major cities, the Winona Holiday Market will feature 20 one-of-a-kind artisan vendors from all over the region, each with a tempting stocking stuffer or unique gift item sure to make your friends and family thrilled to open on that special day. From exquisite holiday baked goods, to handmade clothing, to ornaments, to fine jewelry —the Winona Holiday Market brings shop local and small to the great outdoors.
The Winona Holiday Market will feature the return of the popular Park and Recreation feature in Winona: the Levee Park ice skating rink. The rink will be open throughout the winter season, weather-permitting, and if all goes well will have its initial skate during the market. Skating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to space on the ice, and will be free of charge. Bring your own skates, please. There will also be food trucks, hot crepes by Jean Luc, and special hot beverages thanks to the Boathouse Restaurant.
