0018Just an hour northwest of Rochester, you’ll discover a diverse arts and cultural scene in the lively town of Northfield. Brimming with creativity, the artists’ town celebrates fall with an abundance of events.

    The 50th Annual Riverfront Fine Arts and Crafts Festival Sept.10–11 showcases artists’ wares as part of the Defeat of Jesse James Days (DJJD). This five-day, family-friendly event stirs up a quite a commotion with its annual bank raid reenactment the weekend after Labor Day, paying tribute to Northfield’s heroic past, while the Northfield Arts Guild Theater’s presentation of Jesse Jane’s Jamboree 5 offers a playful rendition of the Old West.

 

0009When the landscape glows gold, orange, russet and red, Mississippi River Valley communities celebrate—and invite guests—to festivities accenting art, autumn, music and indie films.

Meet you at Goatback Road

Fresh Art Fall Tour 2011, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., October 7–9, will feature 17 studios and galleries scattered round Wisconsin’s Chippewa Valley and Lake Pepin region. The artists represent a range of media: pastels, oils, pottery, stained glass, jewelry and more.
