Winona’s Original Festivals

Aficionados flock to Winona for unique annual events

We call them the Winona Originals – festivals created, nurtured, and grown in Winona, some of them with national and international acclaim. Whether you’re into the delicate staccato of classical music or boot-stomping bluegrass, Indie bands or parades, Shakespeare or modern documentaries, Winona is the place to visit. The vibrant river city arts scene spans music festivals, film festivals, art festivals and theater festivals that are truly world class, one of a kind, and worth the drive from just about anywhere.
