It’s always a great time to celebrate with family and friends. With all the festivities, lights, food, and shopping in the decorated shops downtown; Merry and Bright is exactly what Oshkosh is all about. I know its only November, but we have to start thinking about December. It is going to sneak up on us before you know it. So why not get a jump start and plan your getaway and shopping trips now!
We kick the weekend off right with Gallery Walk, which is always the first Saturday each month. Gallery Walk provides local artists and galleries with the opportunity to share their creativity and imagination. The link will take you to all the participating store and give you some unique holiday ideas.
Shake the chill off and join the Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra at 7:30 on Dec. 2 with the sounds of the seasons at Grand Opera House. This is literally just around the corner from all the great Gallery shops. It’s the perfect evening, rolled into one.
Friday, December 8th is the Wright Brothers Memorial Banquet at EAA. This annual banquet honors the spirit and achievements of the Wright Brothers. Celebrate the anniversary of the first powered flight with a presentation by astronaut Joe Engle, cocktails, and full-dinner service. This banquet has sold out in previous years, so do not miss it!
The Grand Opera House brings us back on Dec. 15 with Christmas with the Celts. The Celts’ is a dynamic mix of traditional Irish music and American pop music, featuring a local choir and Irish dancers!
Now, these are just some of the great events happening in Oshkosh while we are open. We do close down for a week to celebrate the holidays with our own family. While you are in town though, don’t forget to stop at some of the other great hot spots in Oshkosh. For instance, Outlet Shoppes of Oshkosh, Backlot Comedy House, Paine Art Museum and Oshkosh Public Museum and just a few. Of course, you will probably be famished and thirsty, so let us help you as we recommend some of our favorite places to unwind. Beckets, Gardinas, and Chalice are just a few.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Brayton Bed and Breakfast.
