Icebox Days Winter Festival

International Falls, MN 56649

Wacky winter festival known as Icebox Days - an annual celebration staged in what the world knows as the "Icebox of the Nation." That trademarked moniker, given to us by Collier's magazine decades ago, harbors plenty of implications but one thing is for sure ~ it keeps the media inquiring and has put us on the global map.

Events through the years have been covered by CBS, NBC and ABC networks and others. The Icebox and winter festival have also been featured on The Travel Channel, The Weather Channel, MSNBC, Lifetime and dozens of national and international publications. A few years ago, Emmy Award-winning television journalist JuJu Chang visited with her son and producer, resulting in an International Falls feature on the ABC program "Nightline."

Yet there's still a lot more you need to know about us. Our people live here because they love the area and are inhabited with an affection for nature illustrated in joyous winter activity and winter resiliency.
