Fall Craft Fairs: Make It a Day Trip

Nothing says fall in Wisconsin like craft fairs! Local or regional, at churches or schools, they’re springing up everywhere this time of year. Grab a friend, and hit the road; make a pit stop at one of Wisconsin’s locally owned restaurants and you’ve got yourself a day trip! Here are three itineraries to get you started:

The Avalon Square Art & Craft Fair in historic downtown Waukesha features a variety of vendors and items including jewelry, woodworking, home décor and other unique and must-have gifts. Complete your day with a dinner stop to near-by La Estacion Mexican Restaurant. Dine in an old train car and enjoy a delicious margarita!

The Southern Door Arts & Crafts Fair is the largest craft fair in Door County and has everything under one roof. While you’re in the area, stop at Scaturo's Restaurant & Bakery. Their fresh-from-the-oven savory treats are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. It’s also great for a quick salad or sandwich en route to the craft fair.

UW-Parkside also holds an annual Arts and Craft Fair. Featuring over 175 talented artisans and crafters, free admission and live music, you won’t walk out empty handed. And especially for that case, they have shuttle service and a wrapping station. Round out your day with a stop at Tenuta's Deli. This grocery and delicatessen serves and sells delicious Italian specialties…try their cannolis.

Shop, eat, relax, and maybe even pick up a new hobby for winter!
