Meet the Elves
Our mission: to bring the community together to celebrate local business during the holiday season.
The Duluth Winter Village is organized by Duluth Loves Local, a volunteer committee and Duluth-area local businesses.
The event is hosted by Glensheen, the Historic Congdon Estate.

Help us deck the halls.
Hosting the Winter Village is no small feat. We’re looking for sponsors and volunteers to help make this vision a reality.
About Duluth Loves Local
Duluth Loves Local is a grassroots movement that wants consumers to think local first, and by doing so, positively impact the place we call home. Through our winter market, we hope to showcase local businesses to our larger region with a free, community event that helps everyone get in the holiday spirit.
Why is shopping local so important?
Small businesses donate TWO TIMES the amount per sales dollar to local non-profits, events and teams vs. big businesses
For every $100 spent at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community.
Unique communities attract new neighbors, visitors and guests.
