Shopping coincides with the holiday season like no other activity, and the Mall of America is the mecca of in-person shopping in this country. From a music festival to several discount offers — and plenty of shopping — the Mall of America is set to serve as the main hub for the holidays in Bloomington, Minnesota.
As the largest shopping mall in the U.S., Minnesota’s Mall of America is a staple of the Christmas season, with special holiday deals, events, and rewards offered every year. With the arrival of Santa Claus launching the mall’s holiday celebration, the Mall of America has almost 2 months worth of events for visitors around the world.
Events At The Mall Of America
While more and more shoppers are slowly flocking to the Mall of America as it gets closer to Christmas, the area has several holiday events that encourage community engagement. With deals, rewards, and so many more offers, visitors and locals alike can spend as much or as little money as they desire to enjoy the mall’s festivities.
Holiday Music Festival
The Holiday Music Festival is a season-long event that keeps mall visitors entertained while they immerse themselves in shopping. Hosted at the Huntington Bank Rotunda 6 days a week, excluding Tuesdays, performances are set for four different times throughout the day: 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.
With performances every week up until December 23, acts will be from the surrounding Minnesota area and were chosen via an interest application.
“Mall of America welcomes guests from all backgrounds and beliefs,” says the Mall of America. “Holiday Music Festival is intended to celebrate the holiday season through holiday-themed musical performances that appeal to all guests.”
Festival Of Trees
During its second annual Festival of Trees, the Mall of America invites shoppers to peruse its display of over 50 trees representing local organizations, companies, and sports teams. In partnership with the Mall of America Community Foundation, the festival highlights the local community and its nonprofit organizations.
“One thing rang clear in the first annual Festival of Trees: Mall of America guests enjoy the opportunity to celebrate the season while helping a local nonprofit,” says the Mall of America. “In its second year, the festival is set to double in size.”
The mall is offering visitors an opportunity to stroll through the display and enter a raffle to win the decorations on each individual tree.
