Below are links not only to the Faribault Chamber of Commerce, but also the arts, entertainment, and culture venues.


Since we purchased our unit at Realife Cooperative, we have realized what a great community we chose to live in.  We have always enjoyed  the arts, biking, historical sites, and active communities. When we explored Faribault more, we discovered music, theatre, and art classes at the Paradise Center for the Arts, extensive city and country bike and walking trails, the Riverbend Nature Center with its acres of natural environments, public visual art in murals in historic downtown, Buckham West for senior support and activities , and summer performance and art venues in the city park. In addition, multiple Realife residents are volunteers in a variety of Faribault services.   Beyond the grounds of Realife Cooperative is a great community in which to stay active.
