This year marks the 10th
anniversary of the 2012 Union Depot building restoration. A monumental transformation, the restoration was an architectural return to glory for the historic transportation hub. To celebrate the occasion and honor Union Depot’s historic past, exciting entertainment and giveaways await Union Depot guests on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022.
Following the anniversary celebration, visitors may witness the unveiling of the 2023 Saint Paul Winter Carnival buttons by members of the Carnival’s Royal Family, Vulcan Krewe, and Klondike Kates.
Attendees will then be able to enjoy a concert from The Mistletones before heading to the North Plaza for the Tree Lighting Ceremony. This year’s holiday tree will provide the perfect backdrop for festive photos throughout all of December. Rounding out the night’s free events will be a screening of “Elf,” the modern holiday film classic.
