Wausau’s Artrageous Weekend


Wausau’s Artrageous Weekend is an art extravaganza offering admission-free fun for all ages at four Wausau locations the weekend after Labor Day. Art in the Park at Marathon Park; Festival of Arts and the Center for the Visual Arts, both in downtown Wausau; and Birds in Art opening festivities at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum comprise Wausau’s Artrageous Weekend. See the 2018 press release and 2018 brochure for details. (The 2019 press release and brochure will be posted as soon as available.)


Free, handicapped-accessible shuttle buses connecting all four locations run every 15 minutes or so between 10am and 5pm from designated locations: Woodson Art Museum (12th Street, near south parking lot), Third & Franklin, Fourth & Jefferson, Marathon Park.
