The holidays are a magical time to visit Old World Wisconsin. While the site is closed for general admission, visit us on Saturdays and Sundays from Dec. 4-19 for our popular holiday event Home for Holidays. Discover the vibrant holiday traditions brought to Wisconsin by our immigrant ancestors, and create your own holiday memories. Stroll through the site’s Crossroads Village, decked in holiday greenery and full of homes and shops bustling with holiday preparations. Explore how a rich mosaic of ethnic traditions continues to be part of our contemporary celebrations and learn the stories behind them.
