Calendar of Events

Beaver Dam is a happening place; there are always things to do!

Explore our calendar of events and you will find that there are always fun things to do and unique places to explore and discover in Beaver Dam.

We are home to many annual community festivals including Cabin Fever Fest, Best Dam Fest, Fall Downtown Fest, and Holiday Parade and unique festivals like the Wisconsin Arts and Peony Festival and Pepper Fest. We have a rich culture in the arts and you will find many live music, fine and fiber art events and performances throughout the year. Take a self-guided walking tour around the downtown and discover 25+ hand-painted murals and mosaics, learn about our early settlers, notable buildings and homes, and rich history.

Looking for something off the beaten path? Plan an adventure on the lake, explore our 20 parks, or travel to nearby bike and walking trails.

Looking for excitement? Visit the Beaver Dam Raceway on race days for some dirt track racing or visit the Dodge County Fair Grounds for truck and tractor pulls, demo derbies, and sprint cars and modified racing. 

Find fresh produce, handmade items, and canned goods at the Farmer’s Market, grab your tickets to our annual corn roast, have a blast at our wine tour, or take a short drive to explore the Horicon Marsh and their many programs offered throughout the year.

We invite you to join us for a day trip or extended stay – we love visitors!
