It’s no secret that Wisconsin Dells is the family vacation destination in the Midwest—and even rates among one of the best family-friendly vacation destinations in the country! With so much to enjoy for both adults and children, it’s an obvious choice for a little family getaway, especially during winter, where you can escape the chilling cold in one of our famous indoor waterparks. You’re never missing out either because we also have a fantastic number of outdoor waterparks that open in the summer—it’s one of the reasons we’re known as the “Waterpark Capital of the World”!
Beyond our fabulous waterparks, you’ll find epic state parks, a vibrant downtown area, and a myriad of family-friendly restaurants—basically all you could want in a vacation destination! There are also plenty of ways for adults to enjoy themselves, from golfing at one of our pristine courses to checking out a local brewhouse. Even better, whatever season you’re planning your vacation, you can expect to find family attractions in Wisconsin Dells—and we made a list of our favorites for you in case you happen to be visiting for one of them!
Wisconsin Dells Polka Festival
This annual Wisconsin Dells event takes place in April, right as the spring weather is warming up for good. Spanning across the entire weekend, this festive jamboree features artists from all over the US, playing in the style of polka music—if you’re a musician, you can even bring your own instrument to the event! The festival features workshops for musicians, dance lessons, and tons of local specialty vendors from restaurants to music-related businesses. Over the weekend you’ll find events like the breakfast buffet, and kids under 16 have been free in the past, as long as accompanied by a guardian. A Wisconsin Dells tradition is definitely worth looking into if your trip coincides with it!
Automotion Classic Car Show
A colorful show of beautifully restored automobiles, this is exciting even to bring the kids along to, with tons to look at. Whether you’re a car buff or not, it’s impossible not to appreciate the classic and vintage automobiles, and the event also includes live music and a swap meet as well. With over a thousand classic cars participating in the past, it’s truly one of the best places to see these moving pieces of history! You’ll also find a number of food vendors. The event runs over two days, typically at the end of May.
Another popular family-friendly event, this annual festival takes place over three days in September. A treasured tradition to welcome fall, this family-friendly event has plenty of activities for the kids to enjoy.
