Event Date Detail
Sep 18, 2020 - Sep 20, 2020

The festival will take place over three days at downtown Wausau’s 400 Block city square park and along adjoining streets. Additionally, a variety of tours, demonstrations and other activities will be offered at several locations throughout the area, with shuttle buses transporting attendees to the many off-site attractions. Festival attendees will receive maps and programs outlining the schedule of activities along with punch cards to encourage them to explore the off-site activities and to be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a variety of prizes. This multi-faceted event will have broad appeal, with agricultural, culinary, educational, historical, arts and entertainment aspects being showcased. The festival will also feature multicultural aspects, as the Hmong and Native American communities have significant influences on ginseng production. By working closely with the Native American liaison as well as the local Hmong American Center, the festival will incorporate elements such as traditional dance, foods, and the history of ginseng within their cultures.
