Oconto County Historical Society Cemetery Walk

Harvest Fest

Nestled between the shores of Lake Michigan and the beautiful forests of Northern Wisconsin, it’s hard to imagine Oconto not having a fall celebration. The festival lives up to expectations, offering crafts, produce, and music. The celebration is a great event for all ages. 9am–-3pm, Pecor Street.

Trail of Terror
Fridays and Saturdays, October 8-28
There’s no better way to get the best bang for your buck from any Halloween scares than by going somewhere you’ve never been before. The Trail of Terror is the largest haunted trail in the state and will send shivers down your spine all the way home. 7–11pm, 4295 County Highway J.
