Chamber Golf Outing

Make plans to join us for the 2015 Waupun Area Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing. The Golf Outing will be held on Tuesday, August 18 at the Rock River Country Club. This is a great networking event with golf and a buffet dinner after golfing. If you are not able to join us for golf, feel free to stop by for dinner with our dinner only option.  See the flyer for details and also information on sponsorships. We have a variety of sponsorship options available to fit any budget and we are also looking for items for the raffle and silent auction.


 

Welcome to Waupun...

Waupun is home to one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures in the United States, including the world renown, "End of the Trail", by James Earle Fraser. The city's wonderful collection was donated by Clarence Shaler, a business man and lover of the arts. Visitors will definitely see why Waupun is known as "The City of Sculpture".In addition to our beautiful sculptures, Waupun has a natural beauty as well. Designated as the "Wild Goose Center of Wisconsin", Waupun is two miles west  of the Horicon Marsh. "At over 32,000 acres in size, Horicon Marsh is the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States. The marsh provides habitat for endangered species and is a critical rest stop for thousands of migrating ducks and Canada geese. It is recognized as a Wetland of International Importance, as both Globally and State Important Bird Areas and is also a unit of the Ice Age Scientific Reserve". View the links section of this website to locate additional information and tourism destinations related to the Horicon Marsh.

If you are in need of a place to stay while you are in Waupun, we have AmericInn & Suites  and Boarders Inn & Suites and a wonderful campground located in the Fond du Lac County - Waupun Park.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for Celebrate Waupun, the Waupun Truck n Show and Volksfest. The Truck n Show is one of the nation's largest truck shows and includes a magnificent display of lights during the Friday night, Lights of the Night convoy.

Volksfest takes place in September and is the place to be if you enjoy polka, good food, beer and fun people. With free admission and non-stop music, Volksfest is the place to be.
