Happening Now: Summer Fun in Downtown Oshkosh

There’s really nothing better than a summer in Downtown Oshkosh! From having one of the best Downtown Farmers Markets in all of Northeast Wisconsin to a peaceful River Walk that leads right to over 5+ blocks of charming boutiques, bustling bars & restaurants and more! Although the past few months have caused us to adapt and change the way we run our businesses and host events, we still have so much to offer our community and those who come to visit this summer season!

The Downtown Farmer’s Market

We were so excited when our friends at the Oshkosh Farmers Market announced their summer season was still on! Although there are new rules to follow and only essential vendors will be allowed to participate for now, we are still so excited that local produce, food and those oh-so-desirable fresh farmers market flowers will still be available to us this summer. The market will start Saturday, June 6th and will run through October 31st every Saturday from 8am-12:30pm!

The Mini Mural Project

This Saturday, June 6th, pieces of artwork from many talented local artists will be going up for display on walls all around Downtown Oshkosh. These temporary vinyl installments will stay up on the walls throughout our downtown for up to three years! A special thanks to the City of Oshkosh, Visit Oshkosh and Art City Wraps for making this project happen. We’re SO excited to have more public art created by local artists showcased throughout our downtown!

Gallery Walk

Local businesses will have artwork on display every first Saturday of each month from 6-9pm. The organization will also be promoting these artists on their social pages so you can also view the artwork from home if you are not comfortable venturing downtown just yet.
