WsYOU – Winona Student Rentals

Winona Student’s Social Calendar: January 31 – February 6

February is the final month of winter in Minnesota…technically.  Spring starts March 20th, so here’s hoping for a mild month, weather-wise.  Of course, we’ll need to wait for official word from Punxsutawney Phil and his elusive shadow – that’s right Groundhog Day is Wednesday, this week!  Plan your week accordingly 😊


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

February 1: 6:00-7:30pm: Tabletop Tuesdays w/Jimmy Jams: Island City Brewing Company is partnering with your local source for all your gaming needs, Jimmy Jams!  Pick out 1-2 games to run players through.  Located in the ICBC taproom, this will allow you to grab a drink, learn a new game to play, watch or join in, and maybe meet some new friends.

February 2: 8:00-11:00pm: Jazz Nights: Stop down to Ed’s No Name Bar and enjoy a night of jazz presented by the Winona Jazz Collective (WIC) – formerly the WSU Faculty Jazz Ensemble.  The Winona Jazz Collective Set will be from 8-9:15pm and then a jam session from 9:45-11pm with students, community members, & members of WIC.

February 4: 6:00-8:00pm: Live Music – Milana Shira: Swing in to Blooming Grounds’ main location on Friday for singer-songwriter Milana Shira.  Enjoy the resonating music of Folk/Country/Pop while she jams on her guitar to original pieces and inspired covers.

February 5: 9:00am-12:00pm: Indoor Farmer’s Market: Get your fresh food, sip some coffee, and interact with friends at the Indoor Farmer’s Market.  This is a recurring event held at the East End Recreation Center (210 Zumbro Street), Saturday mornings.
