Art in the Park 2022
Lanesboro Arts is proud to present the 41st annual Art in the Park fine art festival on Saturday, June 18, 2022, in Lanesboro’s Sylvan Park with 90-plus fine art and craft booths and live music. Renowned for quality, variety and value, Art in the Park is a family-friendly art fair that attracts thousands of regional patrons to Sylvan Park each year.
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 and quilts, hand-thrown ceramics, stained glass, original paintings, blown and fused glass sculptures, artworks utilizing reclaimed wood, stoneware, clay pottery, metalwork, woven baskets, homemade embroidery, and more.

The Farmers Market offered fresh food and healthy snack stands. In 2o21 beverages were available from Lanesboro Community Theater (ice-cold pop, lemonade, and water) and Carlson Roasting (coffee). Craft beer was provided by Kinney Creek Brewery of Rochester, Island City Brewery of Winona, and the new addition of Lanesboro’s very own Sylvan Brewing.
In honor of Father’s Day weekend and to promote artistic creativity, Lanesboro Arts will host an art activity booth for kids and families of all ages with all supplies provided. A henna artist and face painter will have their own booth set-up. Additional arts experiences, like aerial arts fitness and demonstrations by regional artists, are also in the works! Arts education activities will also be offered by regional nonprofits.
