Arts & Culture

It’s not just Mother Nature putting on a show around here. Envelop yourself in theater at the Historic Holmes Theatre, a grand remodeled auditorium. Bring a chair and a love of the poet for summer Shakespeare in the Park. Soothe your soul with free live music at the City Park bandshell each Tuesday evening during the summer. Catch the color of an annual Pow Wow. And discover the work of sculptors, painters and potters everywhere you turn.


Become a Fish Finder

In 2003, local sculptor Hans Gilsdorf created 50 unique sunfish sculptors, many of which are still on display throughout Detroit Lakes. Stop by our offices and grab a map and then go fishing! Each is a one-of-a-kind piece and fantastic photo op.
