Welcome to Red Wing!

We are a community with great opportunity – and a special place to visit, or to live, work, and raise a family.  Our river town represents the best of the past, present, and future.  Red Wing has much to offer visitors and residents, and I hope you will take time to enjoy and become involved in our community activities.

We have a diverse set of cultural amenities including:

  • The TB Sheldon Auditorium
  • The Anderson Center for resident artists
  • The Prairie Island Indian Community and its Treasure Island Resort and Casino

There are many opportunities for outdoor recreation:

  • Several hundred acres of parks for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and nearby downhill skiing in winter
  • Boating, golf, a water park, hiking, rock climbing, trail and mountain biking in summer
  • Walking tours of the historical sections of our city year round

We also have unique restaurants and an eclectic selection of retail shopping in our historic downtown.

Red Wing has excellent schools, complete healthcare, and abundant business opportunities.  Our newly installed high-speed fiber-optic network provides a platform for high technology entrepreneurs to develop new products and services.  The manufacturing sector represents a mix from small to large, lighter to heavier industry.

Our community spirit to preserve the past while planning for an exciting future has provided our residents a superb and vibrant quality of life.  I hope that you too will enjoy your time in Red Wing, whether it might be for a short visit or for a lifetime.

I welcome a chance to talk to you.  If you would like more information or have any comments, please contact me at (651) 385-3610 or by email at  Thanks for giving us the opportunity to share our great city with you.
