First printed as INSIDE THE FOX CITIES in 1984, FOX CITIES Magazine has, with the support of the community, transformed from black and white tabloid-format into a full-color, glossy publication covering the Fox Cities.

Anticipated for its respected and sometimes unexpected views of the place we called home, FOX CITIES Magazine is committed to sharing the experience of life in Northeast Wisconsin, including food & dining, people, history, homes, health & wellness, the arts and, the all important, Not To Be Missed Events Calendar.

Our specialty publications include the biannual Arts Guide; the City Guide, a relocation resource and our Dining Guide.

Over the years, we have produced custom pieces for community organizations and nonprofits as well. We are proud to have been selected to produce Ovation — the official program book of the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center.

Look to us for “the word” on arts events, exhibits, new restaurants and everything that makes the Fox Cities a great place to call home.
