15 Ideas for Week Day Holiday Fun in the Twin Cities

So, it was just in November that I wrote a post that was a long time in the making of 100 Places that Adults Want To Go in the Twin Cities and while it is a great list to find stuff to do at any time of the year it doesn't encapsulate any holiday specific fun, which is what I went in search of for December to plan a get together with a friend.

Sure there are lots of plays and musicals and craft shows to go to on weekends, but finding stuff to do on a week day can be a bit more challenging. The good news is that most of these items are also available on the weekends, as well as during the week day.

I decided since I had spent quite a bit of time looking up items, I might as well share them with my readers and then have them to reference next December when I am planning our get together.

  1. Bachman's Holiday Idea House
  2. Holidays at Flyover America
  3. Holiday Music Festival at the Mall of America
  4. Songs for the Season Courtroom Concert
  5. A Christmas Carol (one man show by great-great grandson of Charles Dickens)
  6. Weekday Matinees of A Christmas Carol at the Guthrie (currently sold out for weekday matinees, they advised calling a week or less before the show to see if anything opened up)
  7. Nordic Holidays Exhibition at the American Swedish Institute
  8. Ballet Tuesday "Clara's Dream" Excerpts at Landmark Center
  9. Holiday Flower Show at Como Park Conservatory
  10. Wells Fargo Winterskate
  11. Various Holiday Events at the James J. Hill House
  12. A Victorian Christmas at the Ramsey House
  13. Holidays at the Mill Performances at Mill City Museum
  14. "A Day In the Life of an Elf" at Macy's Santaland
  15. Holidazzle Village (Th-Sun)
