Oconomowoc Fall Festival« Back to Events
Celebrate the coming of fall with the Oconomowoc Fall Festival. This lovely town at the western edge of Waukesha County’s Lake Country has a bustling downtown nestled around Fowler Lake and Lac La Belle, and the big party is on Saturday, September 12th from 9am – 8pm, rain or shine.
This being 2020, additional precautions will be taken along with social distancing measures to help ensure everyone’s safety while doing the best to maintain enjoyment of the festival and its offerings. There will be over 80 street vendors, lots of food, shopping, kids’ events, dancing, and festivities. Some details are still being adjusted, but for now there’s still a Chili Pepper Eating Contest in the afternoon, along with kayak races you can watch, or even participate in! Live music will punctuate the fun afternoon into evening.
Here’s the music lineup:
9:30am – Baton
10am – Music Time with Mr. Nick
10:30am – Zumba & Zumbini
11:30am – Sadie Jo
1pm – The Hollands
3pm – SlimRox
5:30pm – Liquid Crush

A Happy Thought Indeed
An outdoor movie begins at dusk, extending the Oconomowoc Fall Festival well into the evening. While in Oconomowoc, check out the Wizard of Oz display just off Wisconsin Avenue (the movie premiered there ahead of the rest of the country in 1939), a great classic drive-in called The Kiltie, as well as craft breweries like Brewfinity and SteelTank.
You can get to Oconomowoc via Highway 16 or Highway 67. Forget the bypass routes; follow the original roads right into downtown. That includes Main Street, Summit Avenue, and Wisconsin Avenue. The downtown is three miles north of I-94, via Exit 282 – which is Highway 67.
