Festivals

Everyone knows La Crosse has one of the nation’s premier Oktoberfest festivals. Well, on top of that we also have Irishfest, Riverfest, the Deke Slayton Airfest, Artspire, the Between the Bluffs Beer, Wine, & Cheese Festival . . . the festivals go on. You’d be hard-pressed to find a time of year when there’s not some kind of fest in the works. What can we say? We’re festive. Check out our Festival Calendar.
