• Arts, Culture & History

  • Lanesboro is alive with the arts and history.

    Take in a spirited comedy or stirring drama in a state of the art theater, view work by talented regional artists and attend a lively gallery opening.  You can catch a live music concert or unique film event or visit history museums.

    Lanesboro is fortunate to have galleries and studios where you can see locally produced art, and even participate in creating your own works. Lanesboro Arts is the heartbeat of the local visual arts community, contributing to Lanesboro’s status as one of the “100 Best Small Art Towns in America.”

    Visit the Historic St. Mane Theater for quality entertainment including music, dance, lecture, stage productions and Lanesboro’s home-grown Over the Back Fence Live Radio Show, 7:30pm, the second Friday of each month March through November.

    No trip is complete without taking in some captivating theater at Lanesboro’s Commonweal Theatre.  Since 1989, the professional artists of the Commonweal have brought to life soulful stories told with honesty and creativity. 

    Strolling down the streets of Lanesboro is like taking a step back in time. Visit Lanesboro’s local history museum to have unhurried conversations with friends old and new.
