Lanesboro Arts' Annual Art Festival
The 40th annual Art in the Park Fine Art Festival in Lanesboro, Minnesota on Saturday, June 19, 2021 featured fine art booths and family art activities in the midst of mature shade trees in the beautiful setting of Sylvan Park. The event was 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.
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. Artwork included 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.
