Best Holiday River Town Contest Winners

Voting for the River Travel Magazine 2022 Best Holiday River Town Contest has wrapped and Red Wing did well in two categories.

This survey focused on the best Holiday Towns along all rivers in the United States and over 80 river communities throughout the US were voted on between 8 categories based on population. The Top 5 in each category were recognized.

Red Wing finished 1st in the 15,001-30,000 population category.

River Travel Magazine writes, in part, “Red Wing pulls out all of the stops for their community each holiday season. The annual Holiday Stroll has been a tradition for over 20 years and the event includes a whole day of events and festivities. With all the dazzling lights, this charming town feels like a holiday vacation straight from a Hallmark Christmas movie.”

Red Wing also placed 4th in Best Overall Holiday River Town, behind only Duluth, MN, Madison, WI, Moline, Ill.

Stockholm, Wisconsin won 2nd place in river communities below 500 people.
