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 über-talented "blues, funk & feel-good" band.

Space is limited, so get your tickets soon!
Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.

Free admission for all passholders and ticket-holders

Meet up with your friends and make new festival pals at the Pickle! The party is free for passholders and ticket-holders alike. There’s a requested $5 donation to Flyway Film Society for anyone else. There’s a cash bar, and if you’re a passholder you’ll get a couple free drink tickets.

The “Bottom of the Barrel” offers an appetizer and sandwich menu and a full bar. It opens onto a deck right on Lake Pepin. Keep your fingers crossed for nice weather!

Why is it called the Pickle Factory? Built on the shores of Lake Pepin in the early 1900′s, The Pepin Pickling Company produced several varieties of pickles and sauerkraut until they moved their operation to Winona, MN. It’s been a restaurant since 1987.

Now it’s owned by the Dove family, who are continuing the tradition of great food and service in this historic, scenic location.

We can’t wait to party with you!!
