Audubon Days is movin’ on down…Downtown that is! It’s got a new location, but not really. It’s the original location of 30 years ago! This year Audubon Days is celebrating its 30th year! The festival committee has merged the present and the future with the past, to create an unforgettable weekend! In its beginning years, Audubon Days was held in Foster Park and they are bringing the festival back to its roots. It's being held Friday-Sunday, October 7-9!

The Audubon Days festival is the perfect destination to experience Midwestern fall family fun. As one of the most unique fall festivals in the region, Audubon Days coincides with the beginning of Horicon Marsh’s bird migration and the peak of fall color. 

Enjoy Friday night’s wine and beer tasting and the ever-popular bed races down Main Street. There will also be music downtown by “Run Away”, a Bon-Jovi tribute band, starting at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a youth dance Friday night and a Spotlight for Teens event starting at 9 p.m. New this year is 7 Seater Bike Trolley Tour. When you're down on Main Street for Audubon Days, make sure to try it out. The tour will be both entertaining and educational. For only $5, you will be guided (and pedal your way) through Mayville's Historic Main Street District with a midway stop at the Open Door Coffeehouse for samples! This will be too fun to miss!

Saturday starts with 5k Run & Walk and a Metric Century Bike Tour at 8:00 a.m. Then at 10:00 a.m. the Market on Main Vendor Fair begins along with the Food Court. The day also will feature a wide variety of kid’s entertainment, including Bill Begos, a caricature artist, magician and illusionist Glen Gerard and magicians Miller & Mike, and the mini rubber duck races. There will also be inflatable fun. The festival will also offer archery alley, kids games and crafts, pumpkin painting, mini golf, bean bag toss competition and live music by Consult the Briefcase and Saving Savannah.

Sunday brings Market on Main Vendor Fair beginning at 10:00 a.m. The 30th Annual Audubon Days Parade begins at 11:00 a.m. on Mayville’s Historic Main Street. Kids activities and Music by Mixed Nuts begins at noon and food will also be available then in the food tent. The ever popular UB the Band returns this year too. Last but not least, the Rock River Rubber Duck Race will be at Rotary Park at 4:00 p.m.

Whether you’re looking to participate in the bicycle tour around beautiful Horicon Marsh, run or walk in the 5K, listen to great music, or stroll through the arts and craft gallery, Audubon Days is a delightful autumn experience for all. For more information and complete list of events and times go to www.audubondays.com.
