Meet Minneapolis Winter Sweepstakes is back with a chance to drive off in a new Chevy Blazer, or a weekend getaway

Via a January 23 e-announcement from Meet Minneaplis:

Meet Minneapolis Winter Sweepstakes Offers a Chance to Drive Off with an All-New 2019 Chevy Blazer

Four additional weekly prize drawings feature a Minneapolis getaway for winter fun

Meet Minneapolis and Chevy Heartland Dealers are offering a chance to get out in style this winter with a sweepstakes prize package that could bring you a night on the town in Minneapolis, or have you blasting through the snow in a brand new SUV. The 2019 Chevy Blazer Sweepstakes* offers four weekly prizes and one grand prize of a 3-year lease on an all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer. The keys will be awarded to one lucky winner at the Twin Cities Auto Show at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Saturday, March 9.

One weekly prize package will be drawn every Friday, starting February 8 and ending March 1 and includes:

  • A complimentary night at the Radisson Red Hotel, putting you right in the center of all the action, whether it’s U.S. Bank Stadium, the Guthrie Theater, Mill City Museum or you can jump on the light rail to explore more of what Minneapolis has to offer.
  • A gift card worth $50 gift to Young Joni, one of the most innovative restaurants in Minneapolis and created by owner/chef Ann Kim – a two-time James Beard Award semifinalist.
  • One $50 Visa® Gift Card for a Minneapolis attraction or experience. For inspiration on what to see or do, check out “150 Things to Do in Minneapolis” for some great ideas.

Enter the sweepstakes in person at the Twin Cities Auto Show, or via the Meet Minneapolis website. At, planning a day trip or a memorable vacation to Minneapolis is easy with insider information to help you map out local neighborhood hot-spots, the latest craft brew favorites or a memorable dinner for two.
