Welcome to the Campanile Center for the Arts
Campanile (kam-puh-neel) ~ the Italian word for 'freestanding bell tower.'
Generations of Lakeland residents and visitors dreamed of a comprehensive center to serve as the heart of the arts community in the north. This long-held dream is now reality. The Campanile Center for the Arts occupies the building that served St. Patrick's Church in Minocqua for forty-four years. What was once the sanctuary is now a performing arts auditorium and hosts concerts, performances, weddings and wedding receptions, exhibitions and other art and community related events. The former rectory is now the Campanile Conservatory, offering instruction in instrumental and vocal music, art and theatre.
The bell tower remains to honor the history of the site and the generations of those who kept the dream of an arts center alive.
Ring the bell for the Campanile!
