This is the cultural center of Faribault with artistic gallery showings as well as a wonderful gift shop with items made by local artists. The Paradise also has theatrical productions and other shows on a regular basis. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.

We have been to the Paradise many times as members and it never disappoints! It's a great place to escape into for art, entertainment and often music!

This is a great annual event put on by the Paradise. I've found pieces in pristine condition that can be used for gifts and pieces by some of the great artists in the area like Dee Teller. And the prices are very affordable.

The performances and the entertainment are as good you will find in southern Minnesota. This is an outstanding organization for theater. The only reason I don't rate it with a 5 Star rating is the price. I think they are over priced, very good, but...More
