Red Wing Downtown Main Street is excited to announce that we’ll be hosting Shiver River Day on February 17, 2018.

It will be a day of activities that celebrate winter and our beautiful Red Wing – both outside and inside.   One block of 3rd Street between East Avenue and Bush Street will be blocked off so think of what you could do right in the heart of downtown.  There will be a community-wide snow sculpture contest AND many other activities hosted by YOU, which DTMS will promote!

The Big Turn Music Festival is on this date too. The music will start in various locations at 6 p.m. so keep that in mind.


Individuals, Groups, Clubs, ETC:

Get together with your friends, groups, clubs, etc and develop a plan for an event.  Once you have an idea of what you want to do, submit your activity to DTMS, on the form provided below, for approval.  We’d love to have most of the activities somewhere in the downtown area, we realize that some events are location specific…and that’s ok! Just let us know in the form below all of the details. Deadline for submittals is January 5, 2018.

Here are some ideas:   Bean Bag Tournament, Snowmobile Sleigh Rides, Triathlon, Smoosh Races, Mutt Races, Figure Skating, Kick Sled, Cross Country Skiing, Softball in the Snow, Euchre/Card Tournament, Arts and Crafts, Movie, Broomball, Storytelling, Scavenger Hunt, Pancake Breakfast, Board Games, Coloring Contest.



1.) What would you like to promote your business during this day? Could you offer a special sale or an event? To be included in our marketing for Shiver River, the deadline is January 5, 2018. 

Ideas include: Percentage off an item, buy-one-get-one, host an artist or maker, offer a craft or DIY, host a home-based business inside your store.

2.) The Big Turn Music Fest is Friday, February 16th & Saturday, February 17th, 2018. There will be folks from all over MN at these events downtown, and the Big Turn wants to know if you’d like to offer them any specials. We are calling them “Wristband Deals” since each attendee will purchase a wristband to get into all of the venues. If you would like to offer a deal to attendees that show you their wristband, there will be place below in the BUSINESS form to fill that in. Your offer will be listed in the booklet that goes to all attendees.
