Here We Come!

Once we finish one celebration, we start working on the next! If you have ideas for Arctic Fever 2017, or if you would like to be part of the planning, we want you! Contact us for more information.

Celebrating 10 years of Winter Fun

Cold weather did not scare the hardy Minnesotans who came out to enjoy the many activities of Arctic Fever! The Joey Nova's Pizza Party and Sculpture Garden were a huge hit! Numbers were down for Saturday events due to the below zero wind chills, but there were still plenty on hand to enjoy the day. Watch for pictures and plans for 2017!

Check updates to times and events! There have been some changes--additions and subtractions!
