WinterFest at Town Center Park

Winter Fun for All Ages!

An annual event on the 1st Saturday in December at the St. Michael City Hall & Town Center Park.

In its first year, 2021, WinterFest was a huge success with over 1000 participants. It became clear that people were excited to socialize, spread holiday cheer, and kick off the winter by having a great time with their neighbors.

The event is a collaboration by the City of St. Michael, Shop STMA, and the St Michael Rotary Club.
Each year, we will continue to add new experiences, and fun holiday cheer for the St Michael community.

Located at the St. Michael City Hall & Town Center Park, events are held both inside and outside.

Bring the whole family!
