Wisconsin full of fun during spring & summer

From dawn to dusk, Monday through Sunday and all year long, Wisconsinites always find something to celebrate.

This non-stop festive spirit shines even brighter during the spring and summer months when we trade in our snow boots for flip flops, and ski lift passes for festival tickets.

This summer’s Wisconsin festival round-up features favorites like the 35th Annual Art Street in Green Bay and the 50th Annual Menominee Nation Contest Pow-Wow.

New to the line-up this year, renowned actor and Wisconsinite Willem Dafoe returns to his home state to lead the brand new performing and visual arts celebration, Milwaukee Fringe Festival. Also teeing off for the first time in Wisconsin since 2009, the PGA Champions Tour returns for the 1st Annual American Family Insurance Championship in Madison.

With so many distinctive events, it’s no secret Wisconsin knows how to have fun during the spring and summer.

Please note that event changes may occur.
