GLOW Holiday Festival is back at CHS Field in St. Paul through December 31, 2023!
Here’s my review, plus I have discounts and a GIVEAWAY!
At Glow Holiday Festival, there are many photo opportunities, food options, light mazes, and even drinks for grown-ups. There is also a zipline this year but it was windy during our visit so it wasn’t open. There are also slides which cost extra.
You can see lights all around the field, and you can go down into the field where there are more lights including tunnels and mazes.
All along the top is where the best photo opportunities are. They brought back many lights from previous years, like this angel wings backdrop.
This was a new one – or at least a light display I didn’t remember. But my kids loved it! It looks like Roblox figures.
There are many food options, plus an Ecolab Brew Hub with alcoholic drinks. NOTE: Glow is a cashless event so bring your debit or credit cards!
We took SO many pictures!

We were here about an hour. There are places to warm up – several indoor spaces, plus fire pits for smores (included with VIP passes or $6 for a kit). Some vendors are selling candles and body care items.
And there are fun places for kids to play.
Glow is unique and fun to explore.
Worth the cost?
It makes a romantic date night, with cocktails and places to snuggle up and take pictures. With kids there isn’t a lot to do besides looking at the lights, but the zipline, slides and different areas to explore are entertaining. And Christmas music plays everywhere so it’s an immersive experience. Plus – Santa is here!
Park on your own in downtown St. Paul. We used the SpotHero app to find parking nearby for $6.
Note that Glow is open Wednesdays to Sundays, and some Mondays and Tuesdays. Check before you go!
