Cedarburg Festivals

Strawberry Festival

This free festival is a favorite of many, drawing up to 100,000 people annually to celebrate strawberries, enjoy live music, browse and purchase original artwork from hundreds of artists, and enjoy some of the most decadent homegrown strawberries in the area. Take a stroll along Washington Avenue and take in more than 300 local and Midwest artists who bring thousands of works of art to the street. After stopping in at the museum, visit our Beer Garden in the Outdoor Courtyard & Sculpture Garden for drinks from our Lakefront Brewery Tap House and enjoy food from a local food truck!

Wine & Harvest Festival

Celebrate a sweet and savory weekend at the Wine & Harvest Festival in historic downtown Cedarburg on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17. Meander along Washington Avenue and enjoy more than 300 local and Midwest artists who bring their thousands of works of art to the streets of Cedarburg, including paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber art, fine glass, woodwork, mixed media, and photography. After stopping in at the museum, visit our Beer Garden in the Outdoor Courtyard & Sculpture Garden for the flowing drinks and rockin’ live music.
