Wenzel Family Plaza is a multi-use, year-round community square and green space in the heart of Marshfield’s downtown dining and shopping district. It hosts live music, game nights, and much more. Here’s a look at what’s new at the plaza for this summer!
One of the most anticipated events at Wenzel Family Plaza this summer is the Music Friday Nights at the Plaza. Musical acts from throughout the state and region will perform live on the plaza stage every Friday night through October. Music starts at 7 pm, and beer, water and soda will be available for purchase. In the case of inclement weather, concerts will be held at the nearby Chestnut Center for the Arts.
On Thursday nights, Marshfield’s downtown businesses stay open later during Your Thursdays, so visitors are encouraged to explore the shops and restaurants on Central Avenue then head to the plaza for Game Night. Held at 7 pm on Thursdays, game nights will include a selection of yard games and board games for the whole family.
Plaza Saturdays will also continue throughout the summer. Yoga instructors from Off the Mat Yoga and Marshfield Clinic Health System YMCA will offer a morning yoga session from 8 amto 9 am, and activities and games will be available for children in the Kids Zone.
You can casually enjoy the plaza on Thursdays and Fridays at Lunch in the Plaza. Grab a meal from a downtown restaurant or any on-site food vendors and from 11 am to 1 pm. Looking to cool off? Kids can play in the splash pad on warm summer days.
Later this year, Wenzel Family Plaza will host events in conjunction with Hub City Days and put on their own authentic Oktoberfest celebration. Stay tuned to Visit Marshfield’s event calendar and the Wenzel Family Plaza Facebook page for more information.
