Lots of things! That's why many guests stay with us all month long! (Monthly rates available - call 715-356-7795 now!)

Minocqua is always buzzing with fun events and festivals. Some, like Beef-A-Rama, are one-time-a-year events that draw in folks from many miles away.

Minocqua in Christmas

Downtown Minocqua November 24th, 2018

"Santa has made his list, checked it twice and everyone in the Minocqua area is nice! Santa and Mrs. Claus will make a loop around downtown Minocqua on a horse-drawn wagon before arriving at Gaslight Square. They will make the loop down main street (Oneida) to Park Avenue and then north on Flambeau Street, to Front Street and back down Oneida Street waving to the good people of the area, before unloading Santa's sack of treats provided by local merchants. The pair will visit with children at the Gaslight Square Shoppes from 1:00 pm until 4:00 p.m. Bring your camera to take pictures of your child with Santa. Children's crafts and activities will also be happening at the Square. At 4:30 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will lead the way to Veterans Park for carols and the official lighting of the Christmas display at approximately 5:00 p.m. Enjoy the decorations downtown, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, visit Santa's reindeer at the Minocqua Museum and nibble on warm roasted chestnuts while doing your holiday shopping at the numerous unique stores on the Island. Many of the merchants are planning special activities and sales for the day. There are plenty of holiday activities off the Island as well." (
