Lanesboro Arts' Annual Art Festival
The 41st annual Art in the Park Fine Art Festival in Lanesboro, Minnesota on Saturday, June 19, 2021 will feature 90+ fine art booths, excellent live music, craft beer & community food vendors, and family art activities in the midst of mature shade trees in the beautiful setting of Sylvan Park. The event is held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please note that June 19th is the Saturday before Father’s Day. Hosted by Lanesboro Arts, Art in the Park is southern Minnesota’s longest running fine art fair! Renowned for quality, variety and value, Art in the Park attracts thousands of regional patrons to Sylvan Park in Lanesboro each year. Admission is free. Handicap parking is available at Sylvan Park. Socialized dogs on leashes are permitted.
In response to COVID-19, Lanesboro Arts presented Art in the Park 2020 as a social-distanced and virtual event from June 20th through June 30th, 2020. The re-envisioned Art in the Park 2020 featured three components: 1) a drive-in art viewing at Sylvan Park; 2) accompanying short podcast episodes featuring artists talking about their work; and 3) a social media campaign featuring photos of work and short testimonials from Art in the Park artists.
Over 90 artist booths!
The focal point of Art in the Park is of course the art! Fine art and fine craft artist booths encircle Sylvan Park underneath canopies of shade, featuring a wide variety of artist-made work by over 90 artists from the tri-state region. There will be paintings, photography, fine jewelry, textile rugs & quilts, hand thrown ceramics, stained glass, original paintings, blown & fused glass sculptures, artworks utilizing reclaimed wood, stoneware clay pottery, metalwork, woven baskets, whimsical welded yard art, and more.
