A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor

     

Wobegon Weekend was delightful time for all. Three-hundred guests from around the country joined Garrison Keillor and the 'Prairie Home' cast and crew for a weekend of hot dish suppers, night-time strolls, ice fishing, and a live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion.

Thanks to all our guests (we look forward to seeing you again) and to those who visited us on the Web (and sent us all those wonderful hot dish recipes). Please take a moment to browse around and take a look at some of the weekend's events.
