Sparta Quest Winter Fest
This two-day outdoor recreation bash embraces the winter season of Wisconsin. We jam pack two days of entertainment and recreation fun for a much-needed weekend of fun! At this event we host, fat tire bike and snowshoe races, snow sculpture carving contests, Broom Ball tournaments, a snowmobile poker run, a vintage snowmobile show, and we even bring in those old-fashioned fur traders to demonstrate skills that were essential to living in a simpler time. Of course, no event is complete in Wisconsin without some food to warm your soul. With booths of food options, you won’t go hungry!
Butter World was born of an idea to bring Butter back to Butter Fest. In our inaugural year, we provided Butter Festers with a place to unwind with kids’ activities & games, the opportunity to learn how to make your own butter, the chance to purchase a bouquet of butter flowers for that special someone in your life, and activities such as carving buttermilk soap, and butter tasting. Every year our goal is to grow Butter World with grand ideas of lumberjack shows, contests, and all things butter!
