2021 City of Lakes Loppet Festival



  • Instructor Loppet Foundation

Growing from a once humble cross-country ski race in 2003, the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival has come to be the staple event of winter in the North. REI Members receive 15% off, promo code = REIMember21. Note the promo code is case sensitive. The City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival includes the Luminary Loppet, which is the most magical night of winter, a variety of point-to-point Cross-Country Ski Loppets, Freewheel Fat-Tire Bike Loppets, Chuck & Don's Skijor Loppets, and Askov Finlayson Snowshoe Loppet (both competitive races and non-competitive touring events) through Theodore Wirth Park, and a number of unique events, such as the Next Generation Loppet. And much more. The events take place January 29th - 31st and February 5th - 7th. In 2021, The Loppet Foundation has made a number of adjustments, and will continue to make changes as needed, to ensure that this year's festival goers have a safe experience in these pandemic-troubled times. Please review and keep up to date on changes made on our Event Updates/COVID Plan Page. Volunteers are needed to support the Luminary Loppet and there are numerous ways to get involved, including making ice luminaries!
