Two Harbors Winter Frolic Festival February 10-11

It can feel a little more difficult to muster up the motivation to get outside in the winter months, but the city of Two Harbors would like to invite you out for a weekend of some fresh northern Minnesotan air. Come embrace the wonder of winter with your North Shore community!

Every year a special committee works hard to put together an action-packed schedule of winter activities for all ages located right in the heart of Two Harbors. The Festival runs the weekend of February 10th thru the 11th. This event has been hosted annually in hopes to bring together multi-generations of community members for a weekend of snowy fun outdoors together. There is an incredible weekend up ahead filled with live music, vendors, sliding hills, and races designed for both adults and kids alike.

The sliding hill will be open all hours, all weekend, and is located behind the Depot downtown. Participants are encouraged to BYOS (bring your own sled). Friday evening kicks off with a community curling challenge that starts at 5:30 pm, and a Two Harbors City versus County curling challenge that starts at 6:30 pm. Be sure to stop and grab a hot cup of chili at the Chili Cook-off while you’re out and about. Friday night you can catch live music at both the American Legion and the Castle Danger Brewery. Hannah Rey will be playing from 6-8 pm at the brewery and Swamp Donkey will be playing from 8 pm to midnight at the American Legion. While you’re at the Legion be sure to sign up to compete in the frozen T-shirt contest! If you are interested, talk with the bartender at the American Legion to sign up for the competition before 10 pm.

Start your Saturday off right with the pancake breakfast provided by the Lions Club at the Two Harbors Moose Lodge between 8 am and noon. The Lake County Historical Society is putting on a photo Scavenger Hunt that begins at 10am. Check-in at the Two Harbors Depot to participate. There will be TOP HAT carriage rides Saturday during the day and a variety of competitions and races to sign up for on the 600 block of 1st Avenue. To register for races, head to the information booth located in the American Legion. Races begin at 1 pm. Smoosh races, outhouse races, good ol’ fashioned tug of war, and the frozen fish toss will all be happening around this time. There is also a Vendor Fair from 8 am-5 pm at the Moose Lodge. Here you will find a variety of arts and crafts available for purchase. A covid booster clinic will be available to the public at Moose Lodge as well. Warm up by the bonfire with free smores over at Hulls Sawmill between 10 am-2 pm, or stop in for free hot cocoa and hot coffee at the North Shore Title office between 12-4 pm. The Bean Bag tournament will be taking place at The Landing starting at noon outside on 1st Avenue. Be sure to bring the whole family to check out the John Gage chainsaw carving and catch Marc Gartman playing live music at the Castle Danger Brewery Saturday night from 6-8 pm.

Head on over to the Two Harbors Curling Club on Friday, Feb. 10th to watch the Community Curling Challenge at 5:30 pm (or pre-register to play), then stick around and watch the City vs County Exhibition starting at 6:30 pm.
