Celebrate half a century of art and tradition as the Red Wing Arts Association’s Fall Festival of the Arts turns 50 this year. The Fall Festival’s 50th anniversary honors its past, present, and future with several special additions to the usual line-up.
The 50th Fall Festival of the Arts takes place this year on October 8th and 9th in the downtown streets of historic Red Wing, MN. Each year, this arts festival brings over 10,000 visitors from all over to enjoy this prestigious display of art. Nearly 100 mid-western artists will contribute their work to this vast display of talent. In addition to enjoying the art work, kids can enjoy the children’s area where they can partake in fun activities catered to the little ones. Live music will also be available for entertainment, along with several food options, so come hungry!
The 50th anniversary of the Fall Festival of the Arts is also honoring the festival’s founder, Larry Veeder. For the first time in the history of the festival, the historic Sheldon Theatre will open its doors to visitors. Inside, the theatre will showcase a special display of Veeder’s art, and visitors can enter to win an original Veeder painting. This Fall Festival will be an extra special one—make sure you don’t miss it!
