There’s something magical about visiting a charming small town and experiencing it during the holidays. Shops are filled with unique gifts, holiday lights sparkle downtown and celebrations bring the area together. A community like Fort Atkinson offers memorable events and rich cultural experiences for the whole family during the holiday season.
This year, the holiday celebrations in Fort Atkinson kick off on Nov. 12 with the holiday parade. A few weeks later, on Dec. 3, the much-celebrated Holiday Open House and Market offers shopping experiences, festivities including strolling carolers and horse-drawn carriages, and a wealth of local cuisine that will have visitors coming back for more.
On Dec. 9 from 3-6:30 p.m. (rain date: Dec. 10) experience Magic on Jones Avenue, taking place on the bike path between Rotary Pavilion and Lions Park. Come and enjoy the light show along the bike path! Bring the kids to have a professional picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Enjoy live animals, carolers, hot chocolate and cookies. They can wear their pajamas and drop off a letter for Santa!
