Events for Everyone in Mequon

Granted . . . it’s not as lively as Milwaukee nor as collegiate as Madision . . .

But, for a north shore ‘burb, Mequon is actually quite happenin’.

Our little city by the lake has a surprisingly large number of events throughout the year — and there’s something for just about every age group and interest.

Looking for family-friendly events? Consider annual favorites like Lionfest, Pommerntag, Family Fun Before the Fourth and Historic Days.

For the music lovers, Mequon offers weekly live entertainment at area bars and restaurants. There are also regular summer performances in Thiensville's Village Park and don’t forget Mequon’s annual Gathering on the Green which attracts thousands of spectators in July.

For the sports enthusiasts, there’s the Northwoods League Chinooks Baseball Team who play at Kapco Park from June through August, the Shoreline Duathlon, Bike Fest, countless golf tournaments at Mequon’s four golf courses, and enough weekend fun runs to keep you training all year long.
