History of Arctic Fever

Arctic Fever began in 2006 as a vision of member cities Shorewood, Tonka Bay and Excelsior. The cities wanted to find a way to get the people of their communities and the surrounding area to get outside for fresh air and exercise despite the frigid January weather!

Out of this vision a committee was born and each year the free event has become bigger and better! The pandemic of 2021 has put a damper on the celebration, but never fear . . . the committee is working hard to make sure there is something to brighten your winter! Stay tuned!

The cities of Shorewood, Tonka Bay and Excelsior, and the members of the Arctic Fever committee, are committed to keeping this a free event. With the help of sponsors such as you, this event continues to expand and to remind Minnesotans to embrace winter and to remember the many things that a Minnesota winter has to offer!
