Holiday Happenings at 50th & France
With an exciting lineup of activities, we are committed to a safe holiday shopping season for the whole family!
UPDATE 11/20: With the new COVID regulations implemented by the cities of Minneapolis and Edina, we have been informed that we are going to have to pause some of the scheduled winter activities. For now this mostly affects the horse carriage rides and the winter dining domes. We will do our best to keep this page updated as accurately as possible with the upcoming schedule changes. We are so sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone's flexibility and understanding.
