Winter Village, the immersive wonderland created by The Westin Edina Galleria is back, and it’s better than ever. The holiday celebration that runs from November 29, 2023 - February 8, 2024, transforms the hotel into a Swiss-inspired village in the heart of Edina. Guests frolic in this winter wonderland that ushers in the holiday spirit with horse-drawn carriages, chalet-style dining, afternoon tea, a fully heated chalet, amped up live music and an endless amount of Champagne, brought to life by its newest partner, Moët Hennessy.
Highlights include exclusive five-course dinners such as the Veuve Clicquot Dinner on December 20th; a Dom Pérignon Dinner on January 11, 2024; and a Château d'Esclans Wine Dinner on January 27 and February 15th, 2024.
It wouldn't be a true Swiss ski village experience without Westin’s fully heated chalet, constructed in the outdoor courtyard and outfitted this year with furnishings from Veuve Clicquot. The chalet serves as the perfect backdrop for the Chalet Dining experience which celebrates the charming après lifestyle with your choice of Swiss cheese fondue, raclette or chocolate fondue, all served with the classic accoutrements and endless bubbly. Après at Prelude is the ultimate way to winter every Thursday, Friday and Saturday and will feature dining specials such as Flutes and Frites, which pairs Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne and house-made fries, set to live music and gondola-style dining to turn up your weekend. Live music on Thursday’s will be from 7pm-11pm with DJ Kris Holiday, Acoustic guitarist Joshua Schmidt on Fridays and Sax Sells from 3-7pm followed by guitarist Chris Lawrence from 7-11pm on Saturdays. On Sundays throughout December, Afternoon Tea is elevated this year by Veuve Clicquot Champagne, paired with an assortment of traditional finger foods. Lobby pop-up shops, along with horse-drawn carriage rides, run the first three Wednesdays of December from 5-8pm for those looking for unique and local gifts for the season.
