Nestled in the heart of Lake Country, Oconomowoc maintains a strong culture, vibrant economy, and unmistakable small-city charm. Residents of Oconomowoc enjoy year-round events sponsored by the city that bring people together and celebrate the joy of living in Oconomowoc. The Farmer’s Market runs from May to October and is a great place to get some locally grown produce or buy some handmade crafts. The Village Beer Garden takes place over a weekend every June, July, and August and offers local beers, lawn games, and entertainment for attendees. During the middle of August, head to the city beach for Light up the Lake. Residents are treated to a lighted boat parade, Legion Band concert, and fireworks over the lake when the sun goes down. Around the holiday season, Village Green Park becomes a festive European market when the German Christmas Market comes to town. This yearly tradition immerses visitors in European culture with traditions, food, and European gifts. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with the family as the kids can get their picture taken with Santa.
