OPENING NIGHT PARTY 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM Twin Bluff Farms N2089 Twin Bluff Lane Stockholm If you’ve been to the Flyway before, you know about the great food in this area. If it’s your first time here, you’re in for a delightful surprise! We have an unusual number of talented women culinary artists along the Great River Road. But according to “A Fine Line,” director Joanna James’ new documentary about women chefs, fewer than seven percent of chef-restaurant owners are women. Not so in this neck of the woods! In honor of the Wisconsin premiere of “A Fine Line” at the Flyway, this year’s opening night party is dedicated to our local women in the food industry. These are people who have taken the culinary culture around here and kicked it up many, many notches. The party will be at Twin Bluff Farms, the new kitchen/event center of Kim and Steve Will, just up the hill from the village of Stockholm. It’s a beautiful location overlooking Lake Pepin. Entertainment by Left Wing Bourbon, western Wisconsin''s uber-talented ''blues, funk & feel-good'' band. Space is limited, so get your tickets soon! $40 includes food, drink, and entertainment. Advance purchase required. TICKET IS INCLUDED IN FULL FESTIVAL PASS PURCHASE.
The Twelfth Annual Flyway Film Festival will take place October 10-13, 2019 in Pepin, Stockholm, and Alma, Wisconsin, with other locations TBD. Flyway Film Festival's mission is to bring the best in independent film to the Lake Pepin area of Wisconsin and Minnesota for the purposes of cultural enrichment, community-building, arts education, and to inspire the next generation of filmmakers. The festival venues are on the shores of Lake Pepin, a part of the Mississippi that widens to a 40-square-mile “lake” sixty miles downstream from the Twin Cities. The area is known for its scenic river bluffs as well as for its vibrant arts scene, gourmet dining, and sailing. The Great River Road, which runs along the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin, was named the “Prettiest Drive in America” by the Huffington Post.
