Duluth Winter Village December 3rd & 4th

We are bringing the community together in one place to celebrate local business in the Duluth area. There’s no better time than the holiday season to recognize and gather in the name of what makes our city so great. This FREE event will unite families, business owners, creative minds and more in a dazzling winter scene on the Historic Congdon Estate built by one of Duluth’s original entrepreneurs.

Join us December 3rd and 4th for the Duluth Winter Village, hosted by Glensheen. Below are the awesome vendors you will see at the event!

Bent Paddle

Bent Paddle is a Duluth based brewing company, started by four individuals who love to brew. Great beer demands great water, so it was a no brainer that they chose to be located right by Lake Superior. Duluth also has a rising craft beer culture, making the Twin Ports an ideal location for the business. They carry a variety of ales, lagers and IPA’s, as well as specialty and seasonal beers for every palette. The brewery even has its own taproom for locals to get together and share their widely enjoyed brews.
