This October, explore 19th-century traditions at the Wade House Autumn Celebration. Wisconsin has a lot of unique traditions to explore, especially around the end of the harvest season and the Autumn Celebration is a way for guests to learn about these first-hand as they participate in fun activities throughout the weekend.
Visitors will get to carve a North American jack-o-lantern (using pumpkins) or a traditional Irish jack-o-lantern using turnips, dip their own candles, experience the dying of sheep wool using dye made from the Wade House’s own flower garden, play snap apple in the blacksmith shop, and enjoy a nice cup of warm apple cider in the hotel’s 19th-century kitchen.
Adults (18-64): $12, Students/Seniors (65 & older): $10, Children (5-17): $6, Wisconsin Historical Society Members: Free
