Creating, planning and executing events.
Duluth Winter Village
With Mallory Moore of Duluth Loves Local and a small but nimble board of volunteers, we launched the Duluth Winter Village in 2016. Hosted on the grounds of Glensheen, the historic Congdon Estate, the Duluth Winter Village is an outdoor holiday market featuring only locally owned businesses, restaurants, bonfires, music, food, beer and more. In its first year, the event brought in 10,000 people. The second year? 17,250. Not bad for a city of 86,000.
