The Summer Sparkler

Tuesday, August 17, 2021. Grounds open at 5:30, concert begins at 6:30pm.
Historic Scott House


Lyric Opera of the North’s annual summer fundraiser is taking place live and in person at The Historic Scott House! This outdoor event will give us all a chance to gather together safely. In the event of rain, the Sparkler will be moved to the following day, August 18.

Some of us haven’t been on an airplane since 2019. This year’s Sparkler concert will feature music that was written in or inspired by faraway places. With your Sparkler ticket you can stamp your passport in at least five different countries – all with one stop in lovely Carlton, Minnesota!

Pre-Order Picnic Supper Boxes! $15 each. Four options to choose from!

Picnic supper boxes are available for pre-oder. MidCoast Catering knocked our socks off with their delicious Valentine’s Day Dinner Kits. We can’t wait to open up our MidCoast picnic box!

Picnic Supper Boxes are $15 Each. Choose from the menu below.

All picnic supper boxes are served with a side of fruit and chips.

  1. France: Ham and Cheese Croissant; pots de creme dessert
