Lanesboro Arts Center presents the 33rd Annual ‘Art in the Park’ Father’s Day Festival


Thu, May 23rd, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

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 16, 2013 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. As always, this year’s festival will feature 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! This year’s festival will include 100+ fine art and craft booths, with everything from artisan soap to garden sculpture, painting to photography, jewelry 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: Back by popular demand, Indie-folk duo Patchouli will start off the day at 10 a.m. 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.” Pop/rock singer Amanda Rundquist will perform from 12 – 1 p.m. Originally from Zumbrota, Minn., Amanda is making a name for herself in the music biz. In 2011, she performed at The Indie Music Festival in Minneapolis in which she was one of a dozen selected out of 50,000 entrants for the event. Her song “Silver Plate of Fear” was featured on the Radio Café airing out of Chicago and hit #10 on The Radio Café Reverbnation Indie Music Countdown. From 1 – 3 p.m. Dakota Dave Hull will take the stage with his classic American ragtime guitar music. Hailed by everyone from Doc Watson to the Washington Post, Dave’s guitar style spans a wide musical geography to create an infectious, uniquely personal blend of jazz, ragtime, folk, blues, Western swing, and vintage pop. Patchouli will return to the stage from 3 – 5 p.m. to close out the day. Music at Art in the Park is presented with support from the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.

Food: Visitors can enjoy delicious and locally prepared foods at booths hosted by .....
