8/27 Where in Clayton County am I?

Congratulations to Bridget Camp from Elkader, who correctly submitted the answer, “Paper Moon” and was selected the winner of last week’s contest.

Northeast Iowa is lucky to be home to this gift shop, café, catering service, and meat market in Guttenberg. Not only is the meat top-quality, it is local, natural, and utterly delicious. Pass through the thick, wooden doors and hear the jingling of bells as you enter into the gift shop and café that are classically country themed and strewn with red gingham. Have a seat at one of the wooden tables to order from the menu that is chock full of Midwest favorites. While you wait, admire the rustic home decorations available for sale, ooh and aah at the variety of homemade pies, voted best pie in Guttenberg, or fantasize tasting the imaginative spreads and mixes for purchase. Come by here where service, quality, and comfort are all top notch.

Congratulations to Darcy Gerndt from Farmersburg,who correctly submitted the answer, “Fisk Farm and Home” and was selected the winner of last week’s contest.

Quirky, fun, and cozy, this three-floor store in McGregor is like no other in the area. The sounds of boogie-woogie and swing music fill the store and perhaps catch a glimpse of Ruby or Mitchum, the store cats, as you enter into the unique gift shop. You’ll love the retro inspired items and collectibles as well as antiques and accessories that fill the first floor. Just up the stairs to the second floor, children and adults alike will enjoy browsing through toys, games, and children’s books sure to entertain at any age. Lounge back and relax on the cozy third floor where you may peruse the books for sale. If shopping for someone else, pair your purchase with one of the many fun greeting cards. If shopping for you or for others, this is surely the place to go.

Elkader’s Art in the Park

The town of Elkader, IA is preparing for 1,500 visitors on August 22 & 23 as the premier event of Art in the Park Fine Art Festival kicks off. This first annual festival will feature 35 professional artists working in diverse mediums, from woodworking, painting, jewelry making, metal sculpture, reclaimed wood furniture, fiber art, encaustics, pottery, assemblage, wearable art, and much more.
The Festival, located in Founders’ Park, runs Saturday, August 22, 10am-5-pm and Sunday, August 23, 10am-4pm.
Toe-tapping sounds will fill the air as seven musical acts and several area special performances are scheduled over the two-day event. Music genres will range from country, soft rock, folk, swing, barbershop, classical and ballad and more.
Visitors should prepare for the wonderful aromas of internationally-inspired cuisines at the Culinary Arts area—featuring Irish, Algerian, Asian, and American foods plus delicious home-made desserts, as well as fresh squeeze lemonade and old fashioned popped corn. An Iowa-based winery and brewery will be on hand to offer samples for adults over 21.
This family-friendly event includes a very special “Creation Station” children’s activity center offering art making at no cost to the youngsters in attendance. Visitors may enjoy a children’s art display throughout the weekend.
“Art in the Park is exactly the kind of venue we’ve been working towards hosting for years now” exclaimed Roger Thomas, Director of Main Street Elkader, a non-profit community organization. “Founders’ Park offers a beautiful, handicapped-accessible outdoor location to host so many of our talented area professional artists in a special festival like this” Thomas continued, “The park is within walking distance of the historic downtown district which features unusual boutiques, antiques and other shops, restaurants and other great attractions. Both the park and the downtown district is situated along our Turkey River Walkway, a handicapped-accessible waterfront area. It’s just a terrific place for the whole family to enjoy!”
Art in the Park Fine Art Festival will be located in Founders’ Park just south of the downtown district. Other Elkader events during the weekend include an Opera House production, “Sounds of the 70s” at 7:30pm on Saturday, August 22. To learn more, see www.elkaderoperahouse.com. In addition, A Miniature Train Show is scheduled Sunday, August 23 from 10a-4p at Johnson’s Reception Hall. The public is welcome.
