previous day Events for Saturday, October 3, 2020 next day

  • Fermentation Fest

    Sauk City, WI

    This fest in the scenic hills of southwest Wisconsin is not only about pickles and sourdough bread but also cheese, chocolate, beer and wine. There are classes, tastings and the 50-mile Farm/Art DTour, punctuated by art installations.

    This year, the self-guided Farm/Art DTour is still on. There will also be a Food Chain marketplace of food, art and ideas at Witwen Park & Campground, between Plain and Prairie du Sac.


  • Virtual Doors Open Milwaukee

    Milwaukee, WI

    More than 150 historic buildings — theaters, breweries, mansions, cathedrals, hotels, museums — are open to the public, and many offer free guided tours.

    More than three dozen in-depth walking tours also are offered but sell out quickly.

    This year, the event is virtual.


  • Apple Affair

    Galesville, WI

    In the bluffs above Trempealeau, this festival features a 10-foot apple pie, a hunt for a Silver Apple, a race of floating wooden apples and a bicycle tour with a 20-mile route through apple orchards and hillier 35- and 60-mile routes.


  • Fall Village Market

    Mount Horeb, WI

    This town west of Madison offers vintage and handmade goods, live music and food trucks.

    Tickets are $5 and available for time slots until 5 p.m.
