MADISON, Wis. – With more than 70 fall events across the state, there’s something for everyone to celebrate in Wisconsin this season.
Whether you choose inside or outside or both, you can always find the fun you’re looking for.

If it’s the fall color and crisp air you seek, go wild at Wo-Zha-Wa Days in the Dells, Maple Fall Fest in Marshfield or Medford Area Harvest
Days, then cozy up with a bowl of chili at Chilimania in Edgerton. Have fun indoors at Kohler Food & Wine Experience, the World Dairy
Expo in Madison and celebrate the written word at the Chippewa Valley Book Festival. Wave goodbye to summer and hello to these
upcoming bucket list events.
