Wisconsin Weekend: Shawano Sundrop Dayz, May 31-June 1, 2024

Shawano SunDrop Dayz 2024 hits Friday, May 31st and Saturday, June 1st to celebrate the tasty citrus soda this town began making in the 1950s! SunDrop helps usher in summer with a wide variety of family-friendly activities, live performances, music, food, beverages. You can even enjoy tours and tastings at the SunDrop Museum.

Sun Drop soda is being made and bottled in returnable glass bottles. Tour the Sun Drop museum at 920 S. Franklin Street and experience fun interactive displays. Most importantly, visit the tasting room and sample their different soda flavors. They include Farmer’s Brew butterscotch root beer, rhu-berry, caramel apple, blue raspberry, black cherry, cream, or the original “Golden Soda” Sun Drop. Horse wagon rides will be available between the museum and the park so you can enjoy a ride to the tours and tastings!

Friday late afternoon into the evening, kids can enjoy the Kidz Zone with inflatables and more. Afterwards, all can enjoy live music from Spark Spark Bang! and Driftwood during the evening. Saturday, June 1st opens early with a Flea Market at 6am on Main Street. At 9am, the 5k Run/Walk kicks off. Both the Craft Fair and Kidz Zone fire up at 10am. The muscle comes out in the early afternoon with the Strongman Competition at 1pm and the Lumberjack Competition continuing from there through 5pm. For music, the Oneida Smoke Dancers will perform starting at Noon. Also, Wet Possum takes the stage at 3pm and the GLAM BAND plays from 6:45pm until 10 (at least.)

SunDrop Dayz is also a fundraiser, and the festival has raised over $100,000 for local charities since its inception in 2016. Sponsors keep admission FREE and there are plenty of vendors offering their crafts, food, beer, soda, and more for sale.
