LANESBORO, Minn. - A Father’s Day tradition for more than 30 years, the ‘Art in the Park’ Festival will take place again this year in beautiful Sylvan Park, Lanesboro. Presented by the Lanesboro Arts Center, the festival will be held Sunday, June 15, 2014 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. As always, this year’s festival will feature 100+ artists in fine arts/crafts booths, live music and entertainment, delicious food, and kids’ and family activities. Lanesboro is famous for its hospitality, and Sylvan Park provides an idyllic setting for the event with shade trees, scenic bluffs, and ponds. Special thanks to the City of Lanesboro for support of ‘Art in the Park’.

Art: The highlight of ‘Art in the Park’ is art! Artists booths will encircle Sylvan Park underneath canopies of shade. This year’s festival will include 100+ fine are and craft booths, with everything from artisan soap to jewelry, painting to photography, garden sculpture to fiber arts, and wood sculpture to ceramics. With many returning artists and many new artists representing a five-state region, the quality, variety and value of the art is remarkable and always attracts thousands of visitors each year.

Music / Entertainment: Art in the Park will feature sneak peeks from both the Commonweal Theatre Company and the Lanesboro Community Theater. Commonweal actors will be in costume and character to present highlights from their upcoming ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ production. The Lanesboro Community Theater will present songs from their upcoming ‘Fiddler On the Roof’ production, to be held the end of July at the St. Mane Theatre.

Back by popular demand, Indie-folk duo Patchouli will start off the day at 10 a.m. at the gazebo, and will return to the stage from 3–5 p.m. to close out the day. Award-winning songwriter Julie Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel tour nationally with music that has been described as “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings.”

From 1–3 p.m. the band Patty and the Buttons will take the stage. A traditional jazz band, Patty and The Buttons preach the gospel of hot rhythm and happy feet, with core instrumentation of accordion, clarinet, guitar and bass. The band is similar to what you would find in a dance hall, cafe or nightclub anywhere around the world between 1920-1940. Patty’s eclectic taste gives the band diverse influences including .....
