The vitality and energy of Historic Cedarburg’s downtown shopping district has been enhanced by well-attended annual festivals. Begun in 1973, Winter Festival and Wine & Harvest Festival have been successful in bringing thousands of visitors and residents alike to celebrate the charm and beauty of this beautiful downtown, named to the National Historic District in 1986. In 1985, Strawberry Festival was begun, while in July, 2008 the first annual German Festival, now known as Oktoberfest joined the list. In 2013, A Cedarburg Christmas was added to the line up of family-friendly entertainment.
Until 2006, community volunteers, Cedarburg’s retail merchants and non-profit groups, along with the Cedarburg Chamber of Commerce helped create and sustain festivals. In 2001, Festivals had grown so large, that for charitable purposes, a 501(c)3 organization was founded named Festivals of Cedarburg, Inc., with a board made up of volunteer members from the community. The Festival Executive Director manages the day-to-day operations, and along with three part-time employees, organizes and executes the festivals.
