Summer seems to end as quickly as it began. That means we need to ensure our calendars are chock full of all the warm weather activities that the season brings. Mark your calendars with some of these not-to-be-missed events and attractions in Waukesha Pewaukee. You’ll be looking back this winter and thanking us that you did!


Waukesha County Fair

The oldest county fair in Wisconsin AND the largest event in Waukesha County. Holy cannoli (they probably serve those … deep fried)! Nothing screams quintessential summer than grabbing <insert any food item> on a stick and taking part in all the fun. From the barnyard animals to the rides, enjoying those summer days and nights with family and friends is where long-lasting memories are made July 17-21!


GuitarTown Walking Tour

Les Paul is our local guitar hero! Learn about who he was and why we love him so much. Take the self-guided tour and get photos with the murals and 10-foot guitars sprinkled through the city and end your route with a visit to the Waukesha County Museum for the Les Paul exhibit.
