The Rhubarb Festival is happening in Lanesboro Saturday! Enjoy fun-filled festival entertainment, eat some yummy food, and try your hand at the free rhubarb games and contests.
I grew up with rhubarb in my backyard, and now my kids like to take rhubarb from their grandparents’ house when they go to visit. You can eat it straight from the garden, or dip it in sugar. I’m not quite that adventurous, but I do like it baked in a cake or pie!
Rhubarb Festival will have a strong focus on entertainment, and most of your favorite vendors will return this year. Unfortunately, due to Covid related concerns, there will be no Rhubarb Run or Rhubarb Sisters entertainment this year. We will still have Rhubarb games, food vendors, and live entertainment.
The heart of the festival takes place in Sylvan Park in downtown Lanesboro. Start by browsing the Lanesboro Farmers Market where you’ll find all the in-season spring vegetables and other local delights. Then enjoy the fun-filled festival entertainment and food, plus try your hand at the free rhubarb games and contests. Great prizes for all events! Stay in town and check out our local merchants, and all the town has to offer.
Other free entertainment includes a rhubarb fashion show (you can be in it), goat chill out (hang out nearby and be entertained watching the *kids*), and Rhub-Art opportunities. Music fills the park the entire day so bring your lawn chair and enjoy it all! This year music is provided by a variety of local rhubarb-lovin’ musicians.
Vendors provide opportunities to purchase additional rhubarb treats and products.
Come early! Rhubarb items go fast! See you there!
