Fond du Lac Downtown District’s Shop Small Holiday Spree!
C’mon in. A flippin’ awesome place to visit!
Here’s the thing about the Lake Winnebago Region, it’s stuffed to the gills with scenic beauty, history & vitality, food & drink, culture & events, and people too nice for their own good. A welcoming lakeside destination includes Fond du Lac, Waupun, the Kettle Moraine State Forest, glimpses of the Niagara Escarpment, and the renowned Horicon Marsh. A truly pleasant surprise. A humongous diamond in the rough. A dash of eccentricity. So gear up, chill out and C’mon in.
How locals C’mon in
Vibrant and Inspiring
“I love how many community events and collaborations we have here. Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts is an exceptionally vibrant, contemporary space that hosts these events. You can wander through THELMA’s art galleries and enjoy cool indoor and outdoor concerts. Our community is awesome.”
“For me, the thing that makes Fond du Lac stand out is the people. It’s more than just friendliness – I feel like we’re in a special corner of the world filled with caring, authentic people, always ready to give you a warm welcome and take the time to get to know you.”
Shop & Explore
“The Lake Winnebago Region is a wonderful place to shop. This area has everything – a wonderful retail variety that continues to grow. And these shops and restaurants are run by our neighbors, our friends, and our family. When we support our small businesses, we support the health and growth of our community.”
“We have an ongoing, grassroots activity here called Fondy Rocks! It’s sort of a treasure hunt with painted rocks and clues that’s something we love to do. It gets us outside exploring places like the library, the fire station and police station ; and it helps our kids become familiar with our community.”
“The mark of a good community is that it does not stagnate. We don’t in Fond du Lac. These are exciting times for our community. I’m optimistic that this growth will continue. It is just one of the many reasons my family has planted their stake in this ground.”

Nature Is Calling
Step out. Breathe in. There’s a big, honkin’ world out here waiting to fill your senses and get you moving.
Sometimes just finding a great place to hang out is an adventure. Visit our vineyards, drop in on our distillery, grab a cocktail in our hotel lobby, or dial it back with a brew in one of our fine dive bars.
