Rhubarb Festival celebrates the most curious and delicous perennial in the garden

Rhubarb: Minnesota’s funniest fruit. Or is it a vegetable? On Saturday, June 4, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Lanesboro invites cooks, comedians, runners, and everyone with a taste for sweet and tart foods to come celebrate rhubarb at the annual Rhubarb Festival (www.rhubarbfestival.org). A legion of good-humored vendors and volunteers from the Lanesboro area will be raiding area garden patches and cooking up a tasty festival packed with loads of fun and free entertainment for the whole family.

The celebration day kicks off at 9 a.m. with the Lanesboro Farmers Market, selling homegrown and homemade edibles at the Festival epicenter, Sylvan Park; and the wacky Rhubarb Run at the ball field on County Road 8 (www.rhubarbfestival.org/rf-run.php) – a picturesque 5K and 1-Mile trail run featuring accordion serenade, rhubarb elixir, ceremonial fanning with rhubarb leaves, and delicious rhubarb treats.

At 9:30 a.m. in Sylvan Park, the Rhubarb Sisters burst into song to welcome race finishers and offer a festival pre-show for the general public with a repertoire of rhubarb-flavored tunes. Then, at 10 a.m. the Rhubarb National Anthem signals the official start of the festival as KTTC News celebrities Jess Abrahamson and Ted Schmidt toss out the first rhubarb stalk.

At 10:30, step in line to try dozens of delicious dishes and delicacies – from pies to pickles, savories to sweets, libations to lollipops – all made with rhubarb! Vote and help choose this year’s winners. Have a favorite rhubarb recipe? Come on, enter the contest! It’s easy and fun. See the call for entries at our website - www.rhubarbfestival.org/rf-contests.
