Winona Student’s Social Calendar: January 24-30

Did you know that January in Minnesota is often credited as being the coldest and heaviest snowfall month of the year?  February comes in at a close second, so it’s fair to say we’ll have to weather these chilly days for a bit longer.  Don’t despair though, there’s still plenty to do around Winona this week – and for those who don’t mind the chill there are a plethora of activities to enjoy outdoors these next couple months!


Do you have any announcements, events, or items of interest coming up in the Winona area that you would like to get the word out on?  Just let us know and we will post for you in our next edition of Winona Student’s Social Calendar!

Bundle Up

  • Visit the Lake Lodge Recreation Center for some ice-skating or snowshoeing on Lake Winona.  They’re open Monday-Friday from 4:00-7:00pm and on Saturday/Sunday from 1:00-7:00pm.  A winter seasonal pass is just $15.  Snowshoes, ice skates, broomball sticks, and hockey sticks can be rented on a daily rate from the Lodge.
  • Strap on your snowshoes & explore Winona’s enchanting trails.  Winona features a number of in-town parks and trails as well as nearby State Parks that offer both cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.  Check out more information from Visit Winona and plan your next great excursion!
  • Ice Skate at the Bud King Ice Arena (670 E Front St) in Winona.  The Bud King Ice Arena features a new indoor ice refrigeration system and outdoor ice rink that overlook the beautiful Mississippi River.  The arena is managed by the Winona Area Youth Hockey Association (WAYHA).  For more information on open skate times, skating lessons, and hockey programs, visit the WAYHA website.

Stay Warm, Stay Inside

January 26: 7:00-9:00pm: Anthology: A Night of Storytelling: A Night of Storytelling is an event created in the spirit of the popular podcast: The Moth.  Each speaker will relate true stories from their lives and share their own unique personal experiences.  This event will be held at No Name Bar (252 E 3rd St).

January 28: 6:00-8:00pm: Live Music: Amanda Grace: Enjoy an evening at Blooming Grounds Coffee House with fresh-made pizza, sandwiches, coffees, teas, wines, and live music!  With roots as a pianist, Amanda Grace’s writing is thematically varied with an emphasis on melody and ballads wrapped in warm vocals.  She’s released 7 albums as both a solo artist and part of a women’s contemporary group Wildflower.

January 28: 9:00pm-12:00am: Kryzsko After Dark: Spend the evening at Winona State in the Kryszsko Commons.  This on-campus event is free for Winona State students and features games, bingo, crafts, snacks, and karaoke.  Hypnotist Brian Imbus will perform and Panda Express will be served!  Gather your buddies and enjoy this late night fun!

January 29: 11:00am-12:00pm: Meet the new MMAM Executive Director: Calling all art lovers!  Stop down to the Minnesota Marine Art Museum to meet their new executive director, Scott Pollock.  Stop in early or stay late to take in the art, bundle up by the fire, enjoy a s’more, and say “hello” to Scott and the staff.
