For your consideration, here are four fall festivals with very specific appeals. Here goes:
Wo-Zha-Wa Days Fall Festival, September 15-17, is small-town Americana at its best. There will be an arts and crafts fair, antique flea market, sidewalk sales, live entertainment, a street carnival, and the ever-popular 100-unit parade. The activities fill the downtown and adjacent Bowman Park. This family event is a fun way to welcome in fall.
The inaugural Los Dells Music Festival comes to Mauston, about 25 miles north of the Dells, on September 2-3. Los Dells is the first major Latin music and arts festival in the Midwest. Art installations, culinary offerings and family-friendly entertainment are on the schedule.
Kilbourn City Live Music & Arts Festival is up next on September 30. The festival grounds are staged at the corner of Broadway and La Crosse Street in downtown Wisconsin Dells. The evening headliners have just been announced – Cracker opens for Smash Mouth, both 1990s chart toppers. But the music starts at noon. Even better, this block party-style music fest is free. During the day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., family-friendly activities will abound plus there will be artisan wares for sale. Talk about day-into-night enjoyment!
Dells on Tap Weekend wraps up the fall festival season and will be running October 13-14. This weekend is dedicated to craft beer, starting with a Craft Beer Walk on Friday, followed by the popular microbrew tasting Dells on Tap on Saturday. For artisan beer devotees, get in on the VIP admission one hour before Dells on Tap opens to general admission ticket holders. Live music, the Dells on Tap 5K, and bag toss tournament round out the weekend.
