Cedarburg prides itself as one of the most beautiful destinations any time of year, with dozens of cultural and artistic museums, shops and events. Midwest Living Magazine wrote a recent article regaling the Festive Friday Eves the City holds during the Christmas season.
The list of cultural events continues around the year in both the visual and performing arts. Take in the singer songwriter series, national and international performing artists, the Plein Air art competition, collections and juried art shows, all of which are a smattering of offerings at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, the Cedarburg Performing Arts Center, the Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts, and the Cedarburg Art Museum.
Seasonal festivals take place year-round and draw tens of thousands of visitors to the City. Four times each year, The Cedarburg Fire Department holds Maxwell Street Days at Fireman’s Park in the heart of the City. Hundreds of booths sell an array of collectibles, antiques and crafts. Other events held each year include A Cedarburg Christmas, Strawberry Fest, Wine and Harvest Fest, Oktoberfest and Winter Fest.
History abounds in Cedarburg, home of a priceless collection of photos from centuries past at the Cedarburg Cultural Center. Talk a walk back in time at the Cedarburg General Store Museum and the Keufess House Museum - both of which have preserved history like nothing you’ve experienced. The Cedarburg Art Museum and the Cedarburg Cultural Center offer traveling art exhibits and the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts has garnered national attention with its vast collection and innovative shows in the unique surroundings of a 200-year-old barn.
