Before we know it, summer will be coming to a close and the fall and winter season will be upon us. With that brings cooler air, beautiful colors, and plenty of festive events to look forward to in The Dells! For our future guests or those thinking of visiting us during the cooler months, we thought we would share a list of some of our favorite, upcoming events. Some we look forward to every year!
Enjoy A Taste of The Dells
Step into the cool fall air and enjoy the Fall Wine Walk downtown on Saturday, October 2nd. This event takes place twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, and is truly a community function. For the Walk, over twenty businesses will be participating. Downtown retail establishments and restaurants transform into fabulous wine tasting destinations. Sip some wine and enjoy the paired hors d’oeuvres. If wine is not your fancy, there’s two other events brewing. Taking place on Friday, October 15th is The Dells Craft Beer Walk. Sample a large selection of artisanal brews from various participating bars, all while walking through the downtown Wisconsin Dells area. The following day is the annual Dells on Tap event. Hosted at the local festival grounds, the Dells uses this event to honor Wisconsin’s proud brewing heritage. Enjoy a broad spectrum of beers and even speak to brewmasters!
One of the best ways to experience the uniqueness of the Wisconsin Dells is to spend some time shopping and getting to know the local artisans. Each Sunday through October is the Downtown Dells Farmers’ Market. Located in the heart of the Dells River Arts District, this open-air market showcases produce and more, all aimed at displaying and supporting local farmers and makers. If you’re in town and really looking to celebrate the fall season, you will not want to miss the Wo-Zha-Wa Fall Festival. Happening September 17th through 19th, Wo-Zha-Wa Days are the perfect family friendly activity. You can expect an abundance of activities from an arts and crafts fair, antique flea market, live entertainment and even a parade! If you are looking for an evening activity, the Night Market on the Terrace on October 16th is one you cannot miss. Celebrate the fall season with live music, fabulous drinks and delicious eats – all while shopping talented local artisans!
