Black River Heritage Festival

Black River Heritage Festival

It’s almost time for Black River Heritage Fest! Get ready for a fun-filled day with plenty of activities and attractions for the whole family. There will be a car show, a pie contest, a costume contest, food, music, and fun galore.
There will also be free museum tours at the Jackson County Historical Society and $5 pontoon rides on the Black River. Not enough? How about a bake sale or duck races? Back by popular demand is Paul Barry Blues from 11 am-3 pm! We are excited about our scavenger hunt where you can learn all about the history of downtown Black River Falls businesses and be entered into a chance to win a 4 pack round trip Railroad adventure in the Wisconsin Dells at Riverside and Great Northern Railway!
We have Kid’s Land featuring Arts & Crafts, Face Painting, Kindness Rocks, Pedal Pull and Money Scramble! But that’s not all! We also have raffle items such as a 4-pack general admission ticket pack to Summerfest 2023! We have items from Let’s Roam (Activities for friends, families, couples, and co-workers), Milton House Museum, The Children’s Museum of Eau Claire, Reaching Out Media, Achy Breaky Acres, LLC Horse Boarding, Webb’s Rentals & Service, Safari Lake Geneva Milwaukee Brewers, The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts, Milton House Museum, Green Bay Packers and more!
Abidance Ovens is proud to announce the release of their new coffee, 1872, commemorating the establishment of the first free public library in Wisconsin. They will be having a tasting from 9-1 pm at Jackson County Historical Society.
And if none of that is enough to convince you to come out—how about just the fact that it’s a good way to spend some quality time with your loved ones? Or maybe you just want an excuse to get out of the house and enjoy the weather with friends? There’s plenty to do at Black River Heritage Fest that doesn’t require sitting down or spending money (like our scavenger hunt, Kids Land, or free museum tours!). So come on down and have an amazing time!
If you are interested in donating to our raffle please drop it off at Reflections on Water, 212 Main Street before July 23rd or you may call to arrange to pick it up. This would be great exposure for your business! If you are interested in being a vendor, or registering for our parade or car show please go to:
