Downtown Open House

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), Wisconsin Main Street, and Wisconsin Downtown Action Council (WDAC) are pleased to announce a new collaborative event designed to showcase unique historic and cultural assets of Wisconsin downtowns. With more than 15 communities and 80 sites participating in the event, the public will enjoy the opportunity to visit and explore local attractions, many of which, or parts of which, are not usually open to the public.

Saturday, May 14th
For one day only, from 10 am – 5 pm on May 14th, owners and operators of unique and iconic properties statewide will open their doors to the public for free viewing, tours and interpretive events. Communities large and small, venues old and new including rooftops, museums, dungeons, forts, churches, theatres, event venues, residential lofts and other properties will open their doors to Wisconsin residents and visitors, FREE of charge.

Multiple Communities Participating
With locations across the state, visitors can take advantage of the opportunity to get to know their local community better, or to plan a road trip to explore new Wisconsin destinations. Many of the participating communities also feature complementary activities for visitors, ranging from local business specials to food and music demonstrations and tastings.
