New Life for Lanesboro’s Over the Back Fence

Many who have visited Lanesboro  on summer weekends have enjoyed the “Over the Back Fence”  Radio Show hosted in the Commonweal Theatre on Sunday evenings.

Over the Back Fence Radio Show

For the past 15 years “Over the Back Fence” has entertained us with local humor, outstanding music and just a good time.  We locals like to refer to it as the “poor man’s  Prairie Home Companion”.

On September 5th, 1010 Over the Back Fence took its’ curtain call as a live radio show.

Over the winter, a dedicated group of volunteers has been planning for the next generation of “Over the Back Fence”.   “Over the Back Fence” is moving next door to the St. Mane Theatre and play on the 2nd Friday of the month from February through November.  Plans include retaining much of the original character of the show and surely introducing new features for all to enjoy.

Plan a winter weekend getaway and join us for the inaugural version of the new and improved “Over the Back Fence” on February 11th.  Make it a complete Valentines weekend getaway by staying at one of Lanesboro’s lovely Bed and Breakfasts, enjoying fine dining at the Old Village Hall, cross country skiing on the Root River State Trail, or dashing through the winter wonderland on a horse drawn sleigh ride.
