Top 6 Wisconsin Events in 2018 …and the cabins nearby

Wisconsin rental cabins offer vacationers a great basecamp when it comes to local events. After a day of participating in one of these local events, your group will love the sunsets & privacy only found in a cabin, cottage, lodge or home. From the two of you to your extended family, we have romantic WI cabins and plenty of large group vacation rentals.

For this blog, we gathered a nice selection of WI vacation rentals closest to each event. Because we have hundreds, we could not list them all. But you’ll find town links too.

The ability to remove yourself from the constant distractions and noise can rekindle a relationship, bring the family together, and clear the mind. Enjoy Wisconsin’s lakes, wildlife, open skies, and warm gatherings.


Waupaca is located in the heart of Central Wisconsin. This area is known for it’s incredible scenery that sparks the creativity for many local artists. Come here and see for yourself what makes this area unique. The dense woods provide refuge to many of central Wisconsin’s wildlife.

There are 22 spring fed, clear lakes for all of your recreational enjoyment. Sail across the miles of interconnected lakes and see why many make this area their home.

Waupaca Chain of Lakes

Wisconsin Dells in the Fall is just as good as summer

Wisconsin Dells is a riot in the summer time. Cars packed to the brim with kids in the backseat flock to this water paradise to experience the “The Waterpark Capital of the World”. But as we say, there is so much more to the Dells that we thought that we should share. Not only is there great hiking, fishing, and rock climbing, there are also festivals throughtout the year. Try this fall festival for example:

The Wo-Zha-Wa Days Fall Festival happening Sept. 18-20th is a wonderful fall festival that highlights many local area attractions and businesses. The weather is a little cooler usually so it is often quite pleasant. Along with the schedule, there is often live entertainment and plenty of shopping deals

You would be crazy to miss these 4 Winter Events in #Wisconsin!


With these sub zero temps, who can blame us for wanting to find something good about winter? It doesn’t have to keep us inside and miserable with the cat that has allergies (just saying). It can be exciting and fun. These events are just a few (but really stellar) that you should escape to. Just wait and see.

Racine’s Big Chill Pro Jan. 9th-1/11


This is Wisconsin’s 25th year in being the People’s Choice competition for snow sculpting. Winner goes to the U.S. world championship! Enjoy family fun friendly activities and snowboarding to the Big Chill in downtown Racine. Enjoy the Rail Jam!! Thousands of visitors each year, make this one of the most successful winter events in Wisconsin.

St. Germain’s Radar Race Jan. 30- Jan. 31

Between fun runs and speed runs, shootouts and fly racing ice drags, this is the crowd with a need for speed, and perhaps, beautiful women and beer. The radar run highlights some of the fastest and most groomed tracks in the Midwest. Watch the demo rides, the Bikini race and drink a beer in the Sprecher beer tent if observing is more your thing. It’s hard to really explain, so watch the video here!

Phillip’s Winter Fest Jan. 24th-Jan. 25th


Phillips comes alive during Winter Fest with snowmobile races, parades, lawn more races (yes, that’s what we said, lawn mower races), face painting, ice fishing, snowshoeing and fireworks. Any of those strike your fancy? Maybe Tug of War will peak your interest, that can only be real fun in the winter when you knock the other team off balance. As if it isn’t weird already, they even have a keg toss competition. Check out the event at: EventCrazy.

Drummond’s Bar Stool Races Feb. 14th

This is a true “Up North” experience you should tell all your southern friends about. Nothing says I love you like spending Valentine’s day racing bar stools down a snowy hill but hey, is it ever fun?? Rules are pretty simple, there is beer at the end and cash prizes. We’re sold! Don’t quite get it? There is a video on their website!

Have You Been to the Best Pumpkin Patches in Wisconsin?

This list is compiled by our followers of and written for other viewers to see where the great pumpkin patches are this fall. 

Anyone with children, or a child still inside them knows the excitement of a pumpkin patch, but do we really know where the best ones are in Wisconsin? We tend to ask other moms and peruse a little online, but if you know anything about pumpkin patches, it’s hard to experience the true nature of THE PATCH until you get there. You either leave unhappy or elated that you chose that particular patch. We asked our followers where their favorite patches are. Here is what they came up with:

Pecks Farm Market, Spring Green– The parking can be overwhelming but don’t worry, this patch is big enough for everybody. The market is supplied with traditional and nontraditional fall goodies such as jams, gourds, candy, cider, baked goods, taffy, licorice, mushrooms, fruits, vegetables and more but there is also a cute little store connected to it with your favorite Halloween decorations and fall décor, making even the craft maker and baker happy. Pecks also offers a variety of animals in its free animal petting zoo such as deer, goats, mini horses, sheep, rabbits, and can even get a glimpse of the chickens and peacocks. Be sure to stop by the kittens and give them some love. Kids can jump in the giant inflatable pumpkin, enjoy the corn maze, go on a hayride, pick pumpkins and tour the haunted houses. Check their website for additional attractions and events throughout the season. Pecks Farm Market East

Vesperman Farms, Lancaster– Have fun getting lost is what they like to say here! This farm has plenty of pumpkin picking but perhaps is looking for more entertainment? Enjoy the petting zoo, duck races, the pumpkin catapult, mini and large corn mazes, and hayrides. Pick your seasonal fruit and enjoy honey from the bee colony they have there. Don’t let fall pass you by and round up the kids in the minivan. Open 7 days a week and all major credit cards are accepted. Vesperman Farms

Busy Farms, Fort Atkinson– This is an outdoor, enhanced classroom for people of all ages. Enjoy feeding the animals, 4 acre trivia corn maze, pick your pumpkin, choose your favorite gourd or small pumpkin and see how far it can be thrown. Get your face painted and collect eggs. Enjoy a demo on sheep sheering, play plinko with your eggs, join in on a rat race, explore tunnels of fun, participate in a gunny sack race, shoo in the roosters, race a hog and watch a puppet play. The opportunities are endless and never ending. Busy Barn Farms

Pearce’s, Walworth– This locally owned farm stand stands by its produce and takes pride in its fresh produce. You can see the pride in their work as they also are a great attraction in the fall. Enjoy hay mazes, tunnel races, run through the corn maze and test your braveness at the new haunted houses and even ride a helicopter ride!!! Pearce Farms

The Little Farmer, Malone– This true authentic apple orchard and farmhouse offers a sense of fall comfort right when you walk in the door due to all the apple baking and that isn’t all the smells. They really should advertise free smells because it truly utopia when you set foot on this farm. Pick your pumpkin after you board the free hayride to the field or pick your own from the previously picked area. Enjoy the handicap accessible hayride that takes roughly 25 minutes through a beautiful area of color changing woods and lands you right in The Little Farmer- a barn with chickens, a cow, super hungry goats and sheep. Explore the corn maze where the boast they can “corn fuse” you for atleast 20 minutes or watch the little tikes on the playground. Be sure to stop in the shop for all kinds of goodies you can take home. The Little Farmer

Treinens Farm, Lodi– I was certainly blown away by this farm as this hardly a farm and more a paradise for the young at heart and the real young ones. Voted consistently as one of the best corn mazes by U.S. Today, MSN, The Travel Channel and many more, this is a must check out spot. This sports one of the largest corn mazes at 15 acres (that is equivalent to 15 football fields) and 12 different kinds of pumpkins, so for those that strike out lucky all of the time, you are sure to find “just the right one”. Enjoy activities such as pony rides, gemstone mining, pumpkin slingshot, Jacob’s ladder, 40 foot shoot tubes, a bounce house and milking contest. Don’t miss the zombie apocalypse on Oct. 25th!!  Treinen’s Farm offers vacationers a great search experience. Our one of a kind “Narrow Your Search” tool quickly finds all the cabins, cottages, lodges and homes that meet your search criteria. Best of all, you always book directly with the rental owner or property manager to guarantee you get the best (no commission) rate. Travel On!

Creating Your Own Iron Cast in Door County

Take a trip to Door County this fall and join the Iron Pour Benefit on October 6, 2012. This event allows participants to design their own iron mold creation. The process begins as participants etch into a sand-and-resin mold. At dusk there is fun music, refreshments, and of course the blazing hot iron tiles being created. The iron is recycled, heated to 2000ºF, and poured into each hand crafted mold. The entire process is made possible by students at the Peninsula School of Art.

Creating the mold is enjoyable for all ages.

Watch the fantastic show as each hand crafted mold is filed with blazing hot iron.

Vacation cottages in Fish Creek, WI are cozy and near great attractions. This September, visit some the great locations in Door County and check out the iron casting event in Fish Creek.
