4 Autumn Art Fairs to Celebrate the Season

Each autumn, Wisconsin’s artists and craftspeople come together at art fairs throughout the state. And while you’re guaranteed to find a stunning selection of handmade goods, many art fairs around the state also offer an additional lineup of fun activities to keep you and your group entertained all day – from live music and farmer’s markets to wagon rides, children’s games, and more.

Here are just a few of the art fairs, festivals, and tours going on this fall.

Wausaukee Fall Festival – Wausaukee 

Over 100 crafters and vendors gather in downtown Wausaukee in Northwest Wisconsin for this autumnal celebration. In addition to local craft booths offering everything from jewelry to embroidery to birdhouses, stop by for a ride on a horse-drawn wagon and tasty food and drinks. The fun continues with live music, a farmer’s market, and more.

If you’re looking for more adventures in the area, fall is a great time to go waterfall chasing with your crew in Marinette County!

Fall Village Market – Mount Horeb 

Stop by downtown Mount Horeb for a weekend vendor market featuring vintage, upcycled and handmade goods. In addition to a wide selection of artistry and crafts, you and your crew can enjoy food trucks, live music and photo-ops with Main Street’s life-sized mythical creatures. Immerse yourself in local culture for two days of fun in the Troll Capitol of the World!

Have more fresh fall air fun with your group by hiking at nearby Blue Mounds State Park.

Fall Fair on the Square – Baraboo 

This semiannual fair features over 150 exhibitors including photographers, painters, sculptures, crafters and more from across the Midwest.
