Every year Lanesboro holds a festival in honor of rhubarb. It is one of the many small town festivals around Minnesota in the summer and it gives a great excuse to visit one of the best small towns in Minnesota. The festival itself is pretty small, they have Rhubarb Olympics where you can throw, toss, and hit various forms of rhubarb, a small farmers market, live music/entertainment, and all the rhubarb you can eat (which isn’t much). The festival itself is very small (contained in a park) but the reason we go back is to experience all of the small shops and restraunts that Lanesboro has to offer. Check all my pictures here.
