Viroqua Harvest Celebration & Parade


Art & food fair featuring regional artisans and a local harvest of delectable foods. Viroqua's regular farmer's market is also scheduled on Main St. At 2pm a human-powered puppet parade will take Main Street. The theme of this year’s parade is The Common Thread. Following the parade, events in Eckhart Park include a pageant featuring the parade puppets, a square dance sponsored by Driftless Folk School, and musical performances, as well as artists who will display their work and food vendors with items for sale. The day wraps up with a performance by Minneapolis based fire troupe, Infiamati. An unusual feature of this year’s parade is the Community Quilt Project. Parade organizers have enlisted area quilters to sew squares for a series of quilts that tell the common story of the region. The quilts will be featured not only in the parade, but also at Viroqua’s Maplewood Quilt Show and after the parade in Eckhart park.
