Tours

If you are looking for a personal guide to take you through our attractions, or want to go in on your own, there are plenty of sites to keep you entertained and maybe even learn a thing or two.

Stop in Stoney End Harps and see how harps are made. Red Wing Pottery offers classes to get you hands-on experience creating your own pottery piece. Visit the historic Sheldon Theater to see glimpses of early 1900 architecture, and the historic St. James hotel to take you back to a by-gone era. Contact us at the Visitor and Convention Bureau to help make the most of your trip.

The city’s range of galleries offer the opportunity to view and purchase original art in a variety of media. Galleries feature art from local, regional and national artists. In addition, citywide festivals, crafts and arts shows and expositions occur year round! Red Wing also is known for the Anderson Center, a unique facility set on 330 acres of blufflands dedicated to providing artists, writers and scholars time and space to focus on their work.

Fun Fact
Red Wing is home to a railroad depot built during 1904 that is still in use today by Amtrak. The Red Wing Visitors and Convention Bureau and the Red Wing Arts Association are also located inside the building. The style of the depot was based upon some of the architecture on display at the 1893 Chicago Colombian Exposition.
