Things to Do around Monroe, WI

Looking for something to do in the upcoming days? In addition to the regular recreation opportunities like cross country skiing or enjoying a book and a mocha at Fat Cat Coffee (New Glarus) or Café Claudeen (Monroe), consider the following:

~ The 22nd annual Wisconsin Regional Arts Program Competition and Exhibit opens at Frehner Gallery in the Monroe Arts Center on Thursday. The exhibit will run for the entire month of February. The program will culminate with an artist’s workshop from 10 am until 3 pm on Saturday, February 28. The workshop is open to the public, and there is a $5 admission fee.

~ The first Saturday of the month means live music at Baumgartner’s on the Square in Monroe!

~ Thinking of working on the house this year or building a new one? Come to the Southwest Wisconsin Builders Association Home Show this weekend. The event is happening at Ludlow Mansion in Monroe from 9 am until 8 pm on Saturday and from 10 am until 4 pm on Sunday.

~ There is live music once again at Toffler’s in New Glarus. Come listen to the sounds of The Rowdy Prairie Dogs starting at 9 pm on Saturday, February 7.

~ The Goodtime Dutchmen Trio is playing at Turner Hall on Sunday, February 8 from 2-6 pm for the weekly Dance n Dine event. Bring your dancing partner! The concert is free, and enjoy a meal in the Ratskeller before the event.

~ If you enjoy spending time at the Browntown-Cadiz State Recreation Area, consider joining the Friends group. Their next meeting is Monday, February 9 at 6:30 pm at Trailblazers Inn in Browntown. Contact Lucy Roper at 608-439-5982 for more information.

~ The Monroe Public Library has Celebrando Storytime on Tuesday, February 10 at 6:30 pm. Bring the kids for stories in both Spanish and English. Everything will be presented in both languages, so you do not have to be bilingual to attend.

Come out, come out, where ever you are! There is always something going on here in Cheese Country.
