Events

Sporting events, theater performances, local music, marathons, international events, and more, Wausau has it all. 

Central Wisconsin has become home to many events big and small.  

Each year the Grand Theater packs the house with their thrilling calendar including shows such as The Price is Right Live!, Kenny G, performances by the Wausau Community Theater, and a wonderful selection of matinee showings for kids!  Those into the local music scene have their choice of performances to see at local taverns each weekend.  

The Central Wisconsin area also brought two new events to the area in 2017.  The Grand Prix of Wisconsin North American Powerboat Championship was held on Lake Wausau.  Spectators watching the action were able to see these boats reach top speeds of 125mph!  Also new to Wausau was the International Wisconsin Ginseng Festival.  The festival was an all encompassing experience located throughout Marathon County.  Visitors were able to see live entertainment and speak with ginseng growers down on the 400 block, but were also able to take part in the history by taking historical tours at Fromm Farm, visiting the 45x90 marker, taking a fall chairlift ride at Granite Peak, or heading out to the ginseng fields to dig their own root!  

Sporting enthusiasts can take part in the Summer or Winter Badger State Games, offering over 50 events for athletes of all levels, or head to the ice and participate in the Leinenkugel's Classic Pond Hockey Tournament!  For the serious runner... take part in the Wausau Marathon and qualify for the Boston Marathon while running through beautiful scenery in Central Wisconsin.  For more information on some of our featured events, see below.
