A Pinecrest Christmas

A Pinecrest Christmas brings holiday cheer to Pinecrest Historical Village, a beautiful and attractive 19th century village featuring actual historic – and generally relocated – original Manitowoc County buildings. A Pinecrest Christmas takes place Saturday, December 14th with a ton of events.

Help decorate the tree with the Sorenson family and participate in their holiday traditions. Head on over to the Print Shop to learn the art of printing while making your own holiday cards! In the Two Creeks Town Hall, enjoy decorating Christmas cookies and sipping hot cider during breaks from dancing to live music. While the kids visit Santa in the decorated Visitor Center, adults can shop for unique gifts in the Museum Store. Pinecrest Village is the perfect place to enjoy the simple traditions of the holiday season!

Kids can enlist in the American Junior Red Cross, print their own postcard, view the latest camera technology, and more! Check out the historic buildings too, from an original bank, tavern, and schoolhouse to a town hall – all originals from around Manitowoc County.

Pinecrest Historical Village will be trimmed for the holidays, and wood-fired stoves will beckon with the promise of warmth and good cheer. Be sure to meet their 20th-century Santa and his reindeer for your one-of-a-kind holiday photo from noon to 2 p.m.

Lincoln Singers, Noon – 12:30 pm

Dairyfest 2020

Marshfield features its 39th annual Dairyfest the weekend of May 29-31, 2020. This is Hub City’s annual honor of the dairy industry! This community tradition has been providing fun for the whole family, during these “dairy-licious” days. The kick-off to the event is a Mayor’s breakfast held on Friday, May 29, from 5:30-9:30 am at the Central Wisconsin State Fairgrounds. The celebration includes kids entertainment, food trucks, an interactive education exhibit “On the Moove”, a downtown parade, an old-fashioned picnic and movie in the park, cornhole tournament, and softball tournament. Later that day, an old fashioned Picnic in the Park is offered in Columbia Park. Pack your own picnic lunch or purchase food from both commercial vendors and non-profit organizations. Children’s games including a coin/candy hunt, children’s games, petting zoo, the civic band concert, and an outdoor movie in the park complete the evening.

Saturday is Family Fun Day at Dairyfest. Activities are jam packed, starting with the annual Cheese Chase (2K run/walk, 5K and 10K runs), which kicks off at 7:30am.

More Saturday activities include an arts/crafts show selling some of the Midwest’s finest treasures, a kids’ parade just prior to the grown-ups’ parade, a mesmerizing magic show, face painting, a petting zoo, inflatable fun for kids of all ages, and food booths galore to tempt everyone’s taste buds – and yes, much of it will be dairy-oriented! In fact, there will be FREE milk from 1-4pm.

Completing the weekend Dairyfest activities are a co-ed softball tournament, and the ACO Wisconsin State Cornhole Championships. This fun and lively championship match pits cornhole (“bags”) players from across the state to reign supreme in this fun and – not always so easy – game. The action is held in the Expo Building on the Central Wisconsin State Fairgrounds, 512 E. 17th Street.

Dairyfest events take place in Marshfield’s Columbia Park, Wenzel Park, the Central Wisconsin State Fairgrounds, and the Governor William Upham House.

Marshfield is nicknamed “Hub City” for being VERY centrally-located in the state and was hub for many early railroads. Today, you can reach Marshfield via U.S. 10 or Highways 13, 80 or 97. And while you’re there, check out the Blue Heron Brewpub, the shops and restaurants along Central Avenue, and more!
