This weekend
Maple Fall Fest
Visit Marshfield is excited to celebrate 29 years of “all things Maple” at the Annual Maple Fall Fest, Saturday and Sunday, September 18th and 19th at Wildwood Park. Visit Marshfield uses the proceeds from the festival to support and market local tourism related events, as well as grants for local organizations that support tourism efforts in Marshfield. This event will feature over 150 vendors with original artwork, handmade arts & crafts, Amish specialties, the Maple Village, beer garden and over a dozen food court vendors.

There’s entertainment for the whole family at Wildwood Park on Saturday and Sunday at the Kid’s Zone, Mad Dog and Merrill “Grillin’ Buddies,” and Wildwood Zoo tours each day. Watch dance performances on Saturday by Main Street Conservatory of Dance, Marshfield Youth Ballet, and the Country Style Dancers (lessons available for line dancing). End your Saturday evening after the show at the Marshfield Fairgrounds Park, with the CBRA National finals of exciting bull riding and barrel racing action, Friday night, too. Don’t miss the Marshfield Monarchs Butterfly release Sunday afternoon and finish up all your craft shopping.

Cemetery Fall Clean Up Deadline October 1, 2021
Cemetery Cleanup
All decorations, containers, shepherd hooks, solar lights and other adornments placed at Hillside Cemetery must be removed by October 1st for our annual fall clean-up. Items affixed to headstones may stay, (i.e. grave saddles, monument-mounted vases), but any loose trinkets or items stuck into the ground around the headstone must be removed.

Cemetery staff will discard any remaining items left after October 1st. We strongly encourage any items/decorations of great monetary or emotional value be protected in a safe place outside of the public cemetery grounds where they cannot be lost, stolen, damaged or removed for any reason. For a complete list of cemetery rules and spring and fall clean-up dates, please visit the Hillside Cemetery webpage .  If you have questions, please reach out to the cemetery office at 715-486-2098 or email hilltop@ci.marshfield.wi.us with any questions.
