Meander along rustic pathways and through cornfields.

Enjoy organic, local foods including grass fed beef and poultry, pure maple syrup, honey, and artisan cheeses.
What an amazing first year for our Roadtrip! Thank you to everyone who decided to spend the weekend with us. There must have been over 700 people who stopped to see artistic creations, sample local foods and travel our colorful roads. However, we're not sitting around soaking up the heat from the fireplace through the winter. We're busy creating new partnerships, welcoming new artists and seeking out new adventures for your weekend adventure in 2014. It's amazing how many creative souls we have right here in Calumet County. The artistic offerings aren't limited to the usual. How could they be when our theme is "rural"?
Our 2014 Roadtrip adventure is happening October 10th (9a-5p), 11th (9a-5p) and 12th (10a-3p)! This year we have expanded to include Places to Eat, Places to Stay and Places to Visit. We're just trying to make your planning a little bit easier.
The Village Hearthstone in Hilbert, WI will be hosting our Welcome Reception on Friday, October 10th. Get a preview of the art you'll see on your Roadtrip and enjoy a sampling of modern rural cuisine.
LaClare Farms will be offering a Wine & Cheese Pairing throughout the day on Saturday, October 11th. Come and sample wines that pair well with their artisan cheeses. Tours will be held at the top of the hour.
