Cedarburg’s 35th Annual Winter Festival
celebrates “A Winter’s Knight” Feb. 7-8

SAVE THE DATES of Feb. 7-8 to join the fun at Historic Cedarburg’s 35th Annual Winter Festival. Photos here from past winter festivals show how much family fun takes place.

With the theme “A Winter’s Knight,” the 2009 festival includes the tee-off on Saturday morning for the Ice-Burg Open Golf Tournament in Cedar Creek Park. Ride the hay wagon to view the creations from the Merlin’s Magical Ice Carving Contest, created by artists at locations along Washington Ave.

There’s a Winter Festival Grand Parade set for 1 p.m. Saturday. At 1:30 p.m. that day, don’t miss the Bed Racing Tournament, featuring Medieval-themed costumed racing teams, followed by the Barrel Racing Contest at 2 p.m.

For grownups, Saturday evening activities include a beer tasting and casino night, with samples from area restaurants and brewers.

Sunday morning brings a “Quest for Pancakes” Breakfast. At noon there is an egg hunt and from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. there is an Alaskan Malamute Dog Weight Pull Competition. Every day of the weekend, there is family skating at the Mill Pond and Cedar Creek Park.

Cedar Creek Settlement, located at the corner of Bridge St. and Washington Ave., always draws for shoppers and diners. During the festival, the settlement’s live music, fun activities and goodie bags make this a don’t miss destination. Cedar Creek Winery offers wine sampling at the settlement as well.

Cedarburg is located just north of Milwaukee. Cedarburg’s downtown Washington Avenue area is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, with more than 100 buildings considered historically significant. For more information, phone 262-377-9620 or 800-237-2874 or visit
