Event Feature: Lamar Festival

The Lamar Center, just outside of St. Croix Falls, WI is the home of the area's premier alternative festival.  Photo credit to the Lamar Community.

The Upper St. Croix River Valley has so much going for it - what a wonderful place where you can enjoy the country lifestyle, with literally the conveniences and luxuries of the city.  You literally have the best of both worlds.

Next Friday evening & Saturday, is a definite summer highlight, just outside of St. Croix Falls:  The Lamar Festival!

The Lamar Festival is held at the Lamar Center, roughly between St. Croix Falls and Centuria, WI - roughly 1 hour from downtown Minneapolis.  The Lamar Center, on the National Register of Historic Places, is a 1905 School House in the process of being restored to pristine condition.  Today, the Center is used for hosting Solar Power seminars for Solar Tradesmen, art camps for kids, family events, and is part of the National Tour of Solar Homes and Businesses.  


The festival is known as an extravaganza of music, art, local food, dance, and sustainability.  Friday evening kicks off at 6PM, with lessons in Latin rhythm drumming, dance lessons, and Salsa music.  Come on Saturday for a day packed with a wide variety of music acts, kids activities, excellent food & drink, and groovy people.  There is camping available on-site.

Come for a weekend of great music, food, camping, and cycling or running in the beautiful river valley!  For more info, go to http://www.lamarcommunity.org/ or see their poster below.
