The Valentine’s Bash 2016: For the Love of the Arts

Celebrate your “Love of the Arts” at the third annual Great River Shakespeare Festival & Minnesota Marine Art Museum’s Valentine’s Bash!

“The Valentine’s Bash: For the Love of the Arts,” has become a favorite Winona winter event that creates an opportunity for arts lovers to celebrate Valentine’s Day and support two of their favorite Winona Arts organizations at once. Held at the iconic Minnesota Marine Art Museum on Saturday, February 13 from 6:00-10:00 p.m, the 2016 Valentine’s Bash will feature a silent and live auction with items highlighting art and experience packages, plenty of sweet and savory treats catered by a variety of local restaurants, music by The Old Fashioneds and Elsa Va, timeless works of love brought to life by actors and poets, access to one of the most prolific art museums in Minnesota, a luminary walk by the beautiful Mississippi River, and more! A cash bar will be available throughout the evening.

This event is for all arts-lovers, and individuals as well as groups and couples are encouraged to attend. The Valentine’s Bash is part of the Winona Winter Carnival weekend, which will feature events all over Winona throughout the entire weekend.

Tickets for the Valentine’s Bash are only $30 per person until February 5, after which prices increase to $35. Space is limited, so early purchases are encouraged. Tickets are available online at under “Event Tickets.” You may also purchase tickets in person at Minnesota Marine Art Museum or Great River Shakespeare Festival during their regular business hours. All proceeds from the Valentine’s Bash go to support programming at both Minnesota Marine Art Museum and Great River Shakespeare Festival.
