Holiday celebrations are kicking off in Oshkosh in November. I don’t think it matters that the temps have felt more like Fall. I have a feeling that will be changing quickly. Want to start planning for the girls getaway? I have a few suggestions that will make you want to dig in and then relax after a long day of shopping. Start your holiday shopping early by attending the admission FREE Holiday Wonders Shopping Expo & Craft Fair on Saturday, November 11th, 2017 from
Saturday, November 11th from 10-4 at Sunnyview Expo Center is the Holiday Wonders Shopping Expo and Craft Fair. There will be over 75 vendors selling a variety of unique items for those hard to buy for people in your life. FREE admission.

Saturday, November 18 The Grand Opera House is presenting Disenchanted. Forget once upon a time and Prince Charming. Disenchanted brings Snow White and her squad of sassy princesses to tell the “real” story behind the fable. This is a PG 13 showing so leave the kiddos with their Fairy God Mother. This will definitely be a weekend to enjoy with the girls.
Let’s not forget about the annual Celebration of Lights which begins on November 24th at 5:00 PM. There are over three quarters of a million lights spread over 102 miles of beautiful Menominee Park.
With so much to do in Oshkosh in November, spend a few nights and enjoy our downtown. Oshkosh is the Event City!
