Rhubarb Festival serves up tart entertainment


Fri, May 10th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

On Saturday, June 1, 2013, the ninth annual Rhubarb Festival promises loads of fun and free entertainment for the whole family. Starting at 10am, running until 3pm in Lanesboro’s Sylvan Park, the festival celebrates the funniest vegetable in all of Minnesota with off-beat entertainment and generous helpings of humor.

The event’s signature attraction is a public tasting of the sweet and savory food and beverages entered in the annual recipe contest. If you cook with rhubarb, you’re invited to enter your own favorite recipe. See call for entries on the Rhubarb Festival website: http://www.rhubarbfestival.org.

If you like to sample delicious, interesting or unexpected taste sensations, step into the tasting line and enjoy dozens of items made with rhubarb – from pies to pickles, savories to sweets, libations to fruit leather. Vote for your favorites and help choose this year’s prizing-winning recipes.

If you’re inspired by others who cook with rhubarb, the Festival is the perfect place to pick up your own copy of the Rhubarb Festival cookbook “Everything Rhubarb,” a compendium of award-winning recipes and stories from a small town that celebrates Rhubarb.

Next, take a stroll around the park and join in even more rhubarb hoopla. Visit the Cock-A-Doodle Zoo, where you’ll meet a real kangaroo, lemur, alligator and other exotic (possibly rhubarb-eating) creatures. Dress up and join the Rhubarb Fashion show – your entry is welcome! Try your hand at some whacky Rhubarb Games, a Pie Making Contest, Minute-to-Win-It contest, or lead little ears to the Story Tree for read-aloud entertainment. The day’s lineup also features the Lanesboro Farmers Market, Rhub-Art for the kids, bake sales, a fun new crop of food and goods vendors, Rhubarb Rants, and largest rhubarb leaf and stalk contests. Top off your rhubarb experience with the 7:30pm Rhubarb Sisters in concert, “I Left My Heart in Rhubarb Country.”

When you’re winded from the flurry, get your picnic blanket or lawn chairs from the car. Sit back, let the rhubarb digest as you listen to fun-loving musicians and tongue-in-cheek entertainers from the area: opening ceremony by KTTC-TV Morning News Team Jess Abrahamson and Ted Schmidt; blues by the notorious Rutabaga Brothers; original rhubarb harmonies by the Rhubarb Sisters; local musical favorites Walter Bradley, .....
