The Top Wausau Events This Summer

The toll that 2020 took on many communities across the nation was something that many thought could never be recovered. Now as restrictions are lifted the city of Wausau feels that it is important to move forward with Wausau events in order to maintain and bring back a sense of community here. While precautions will still be in place, residents and visitors are welcome to come out and see live music once again, enjoy some art, and dance to the sound of the blues. Here are the top Wausau events to look forward to this summer!

  1. Concerts on the Square is a favorite of all the Wausau events where people gather to listen to live music, eat and drink in the 400 Block of downtown Wausau. In this 10-week series that runs every Wednesday from June 16-August 18, you’ll hear a variety of music by many different artists. It is free of charge and is a great way to enjoy the beauty of a Wisconsin summer night. Food trucks will be on-site for snacks and you are welcome to carry in your own food.
  2. Chalk Fest transforms the 400 Block sidewalks into works of art for the public. This most colorful of Wausau events has been happening since 2004 as an annual art festival and showcases artists of all ages. There is a children’s chalk fest for those who are under 12 and wish to participate. For those who just want to watch the magic happen, it’s a great way to observe the creation of a piece of art and be awed by the finished product in the end.
  3. The Big Bull Falls Blues Fest is Wisconsin’s longest-running blues festival. On the one-of-a-kind venue of Fern Island Park from August 20-21, you hear some of the best blues artists do what they do best. Artists like Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, Carolyn Wonderland, and Reverend Raven will have you tapping your toes into the summer night at one of the most popular Wausau events.
