Don’t miss these annual events in Marshfield

Marshfield's event calendar offers something fun to do all year round, from community celebrations to festive holiday light shows.

There’s always something happening in Marshfield, Marathon County, and Wood County. Here’s a look at some of the events that welcome visitors to central Wisconsin year after year.


Dairyfest kicks off the festival season in Marshfield and celebrates the area’s agricultural industry and the dairy farmer. It all begins bright and early Friday morning with the Dairyfest Breakfast at Marshfield Fairgrounds Park, in the Expo Building. This weekend-long celebration abounds with downtown activities, including a parade, food offerings galore, kids’ activities, an old-fashioned Picnic in the Park, outdoor movie, softball tournament, and so much more (for a full list of activities, check out our events calendar or marshfieldchamber.com)! With so much to do, you’re sure to have an “udderly” good time!


Summer heats up with Hub City Days, which takes over Central Avenue and celebrates Marshfield’s community and historic downtown, past, present, and future. Enjoy a massive 500+ Car & Bike Show, a Family Zone with bounce houses & kiddie games, Brew Fest, Beer Garden, and live music. If you love and appreciate all things auto, you don’t want to miss this show! For more information, contact Main Street Marshfield.


There’s no better way send off summer than spending a week at the Central Wisconsin State Fair at Marshfield Fairgrounds Park. Bring the whole family out to see 4-H and open class exhibits, free grandstand entertainment with gate admission, midway carnival rides and games, commercial exhibits and special programs, fair food, and beer gardens. Rock out in the grandstand to the sound stylings of up-and-coming artists and classic favorites. Visit centralwisconsinstatefair.com for the complete schedule of activities and entertainment.


Marshfield taps into the joy of the fall season and all things maple with the annual Maple Fall Fest celebration at Wildwood Park & Zoo in September. Each year an estimated 10,000+ attendees enjoy over 150 vendors with original handmade arts and crafts and artwork, a traditional potato pancake breakfast, Amish specialties, Maple Village, over a dozen food vendors, and a beer garden. There’s family entertainment at the Kid’s Zone, and tours of Wildwood Zoo are offered.  Find more details on our event page.


When it’s time to break out the holiday spirit, it’s time to head over to Rotary Winter Wonderland, open nightly from the day after Thanksgiving until New Year’s Eve at Wildwood Zoo. The zoo glows and twinkles with over two million LED lights and offers both walking and driving routes. Young and young at heart will be delighted by animated displays and holiday music. This marvelous winter wonderland helps support local food pantries each year. No entry fee, but cash and food donations encouraged.
