Home > Travel Tools > Wisconsin Ginseng Festival

Coming back to the Ginseng Capital!

The festival will take place over three days, September 14-16, 2018 at downtown Wausau’s 400 Block city square park and along adjoining streets. Additionally, a variety of tours, demonstrations and other activities will be offered at several locations throughout the area, with shuttle buses transporting attendees to the many off-site attractions. Festival attendees will receive maps and programs outlining the schedule of activities. 

This multi-faceted event will have broad appeal, with agricultural, culinary, educational, historical, arts and entertainment aspects being showcased. The festival will also feature multicultural aspects, as the Hmong and Native American communities have significant influences on ginseng production. By working closely with the Native American liaison as well as the local Hmong American Center, the festival will incorporate elements such as traditional dance, foods, and the history of ginseng within their cultures.
