Embrace Winter in the Fox Cities

Sponsored Content

Winter in Wisconsin is amazing. Yes, you heard us right! From holiday events and festivals to fireside drinks and hearty meals, the chill in the air doesn’t freeze the fun here in the Fox Cities. In addition to being a great time for leisure travel, winter can also be an ideal time to host your next event in the Fox Cities.

First time considering it? Here are a few reasons to get the wheels turning:

1. No matter the weather, there are plenty of fantastic group activities available in the Fox Cities to keep your attendees engaged. For those who want a breath of fresh air, take a group to Bubolz Nature Preserve for cross-country skiing or to The Plaza at Gateway Park for ice skating. Both facilities have equipment rentals and plenty of space for happy hour or hors d’oeuvres.

If your event is at the Best Western Premier Bridgewood Resort Hotel, reserve some time on their all-season platform tennis court and watch the competitive spirit heat up. Speaking of competition, Appleton Axe can provide hours of entertainment all under one roof with 12 throwing lanes, shuffleboard, indoor yard games, an escape room, and a fully stocked bar.

2. Hosting an event in the winter can provide economic benefits to planners with a constrained budget. Room blocks can typically be acquired at more favorable rates and venues may be willing to negotiate as business slows during the off-season. As you begin to research and plan, reach out to our group sales experts here at the Fox Cities CVB and we’re happy to provide recommendations for other cost-saving options. You’ll have our support every step of the way in addition to a robust list of free services offered to visiting groups.

3. If your group is arriving early or has a little extra time, there are many non-profit organizations in the Fox Cities that could use an extra hand. Whether it’s serving a meal at a shelter or packing food bags at Feeding America, volunteer opportunities provide a memorable team-building experience while leaving a lasting impact on your host community. If you’re interested in coordinating a volunteering activity, the Fox Cities CVB can help match you with a cause that best aligns with your values.
