Scheduled for February 27 through March 1, 2022, attendees will experience the unique food and beverage event in heated, pop-up igloos at Wenonah Park in Bay City.

Each of the three evenings, guests can enjoy the one-hour and 45-minute dining experience inside heated igloos. The 28 igloos feature one table, accommodating up to eight guests. The igloos will be located throughout Wenonah Park.
