Art Fair on the Farm

Come join us at the 10th Annual Art Fair on the Farm, Sunday, July 7th from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.  The fair takes place at Norskedalen’s Thrunegaarden, formerly known as the Skumsrud-Thrune Farm, located on Highway 14 about two miles west of Coon Valley.  Just look for the sign on the highway.

Enjoy the day walking among the historic buildings, stopping at the various artisans’ booths.  There will be artists of all kinds demonstrating and selling their wares.  Midwest Bites lunch truck will be on site all day serving fresh-made lunches and snacks, and the Ice Cold Refreshment truck will be selling sodas, ice cream and shaved ice treats. Admission to the event includes three sample tickets to use any of these vendors: Pearl Street Brewery’s craft beers, DnA Vintners’ award-winning cranberry wines, and WiscoPop’s locally flavored organic soda pops.

Visitors will get to tour and experience several pioneer homes from the mid-1800’s.  The one-room schoolhouse will be open, as will the renovated 3-bedroom  Farmhouse available for rent by the day or week.  Our small museum explains the history of the Norwegian and Native American families who lived here together in the mid-1800’s.  And don’t miss the hourly historic talks, starting at 11:30 and on the hour, while you spend the day in this beautiful setting. Enjoy a day of history, beautiful scenery, good food and drink, and the appreciation of unique artwork.
