Old World Wisconsin Upcoming Events

One of the most fun events that daughter and I've ever gone to was the Laura Ingalls Wilder day held at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle.

They are offering three future events which sound promising:

Old World Wedding - September 13

10 am-5 pm

Be our guest at an 1840s wedding celebration. Participate in the ceremony and enjoy refreshments at the old-fashioned reception. Wedding ceremonies will begin at 11 am and 2 pm.

Autumn on the Farms - October 11-12, 18-19

10 am-5 pm

Take part in the annual ritual of autumn just as our rural ancestors did in preparing for the arrival of winter long ago. As a special feature of the event, live dramatic performances of Aftermath of the Great Fires of 1871: Survivors' Stories will take place five times each day in the Peterson Wagon Shop. Also, on Sunday, October 12, Wisconsin Historical Society Press author Jerry Apps will be on hand in the museum store to sign copies of his many books, including his latest, Old Farm: A History.

Bram Stoker's Dracula Dinner Theater - October 24-25, October 31-November 1

6-9 pm

The vampire Count Dracula, popularized in Bram Stoker's 1897 horror classic, comes to life during Friday and Saturday evening dinner theater performances set amidst the shadowy night backdrop of the Kettle Moraine State Forest and our historic buildings. Dress for the weather so you can help find the vampire's outdoor lair during the final climactic scene! (Content appropriate for most families, however parents should use their own discretion regarding attendance by very young children.) Reservations required. Adults $60; children under 18 $50. Reservations required. (Event info from the Walworth County website.)
