Coming to Oshkosh this April? Listed below are some annual events along with things you shouldn’t miss out on.

April 9-10 Special Olympics Sports Tournament celebrates its 39th year in Oshkosh on the UW- Oshkosh campus, the State Indoor Sports Tournament hosts basketball skills, team basketball and gymnastics competition to more than 650 athletes from across the state.

April 23 is the annual Oshkosh WineFeast, one of Oshkosh’s most popular events of the year with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Oshkosh Boys and Girls Club .  Guests can attend the general WineFeast, which begins at 7 p.m. and gives guests the opportunity to sample fine wine from around the world, sip tantalizing brews and try tasty cuisine from area restaurants. Guests can also choose to purchase reservations to the elegant wine and dish tasting that happens before general WineFeast at 4 p.m. called Cellar Select. Cellar Select provides a richer fine wine and dinner experience and is an opportunity to socialize with familiar faces in a relaxing environment. Doors open at 4 p.m. for a champagne reception and the evening program starts promptly at 5 p.m.

April 23-24 is the annual Oshkosh Marathon, half marathon and 5K race. With the weather kicking off March to such a great start, we can only hope for the best weather conditions next month. Starting at 7:00 AM, on Sunday April 24, the race will begin just a few blocks away from the inn. Proceeds from the event benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Oshkosh, Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services, Inc. and the Oshkosh Area Humane Society.
