Trent Jonas came to Minnesota to attend college - and never left. He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
Winter Skolstice, an annual celebration of winter and the holidays at Viking Lakes in Eagan, launched in January of 2023. Going forward, one of the celebration’s big draws is The Winter Markets at Vikings Lake, which features a rotating lineup of vendors every weekend from mid-November through the end of February. This winter market in Minnesota is not only one of the newest in the state, it’s also part of one of our favorite winter celebrations in Minnesota.
We think The Winter Markets at Viking Lakes, especially considering all the other activities that take place in the “village,” is a magical spot to visit and do some shopping during the holiday season. Learn more about the event and this winter market in Minnesota on the Winter Skolstice webpage. Visit Winter Skolstice on Facebook for photos and updates. Why not book a room close to the action with a stay at the Omni Viking Lakes Hotel?
