La Crosse Storytelling Festival

The La Crosse Storytelling Festival, always the weekend after Labor Day, is the only storytelling festival in Wisconsin. It is a fantastic family weekend with scary stories on Friday night and family and children’s stories and activities on Saturday afternoon. Saturday night is the adult cabaret where the stories are geared for those eighteen and over. The festival brings in high level National Talent every year while continuing to highlight local and regional tellers. With two stages and a full schedule of tellers and musicians, the La Crosse Storytelling Festival also has a silent auction, book store, jugglers, face painting, and the state’s best fest food. Come and enjoy the magic of storytelling!

Rock’n the Docks

This summer concert event for 21+ year old adults is a great way to kick back and relax with some friends. The scenic setting along the Black River backwaters is the ideal way to enjoy a summer Saturday evening. The event takes place in the parking lot of Huck Finn’s on the Water Restaurant and American Marine located on French Island in La Crosse, WI.

Proceeds from the event benefit the La Crosse Area Family YMCA’s Annual Campaign and allow the Y to provide our neighbors with financial assistance for membership and programs, making sure that you, your family and our community have the resources and support needed to learn, grow and thrive. In 2017, the Y provided 1.2 million dollars in financial assistance to more than 5,000 individuals in our community for memberships, programs, and child care.
