Fall is what many locals believe is the best time to be on Madeline Island. The third weekend in October is always our Family Fall Fest on Madeline Island. This is a festive time for families to take advantage of the last good weather of the season and enjoy the vivid fall colors on a spectacular island setting.
Among the many free family friendly events that take place during Family Fall Fest are *pumpkin decorating, *birdhouse building, face painting, clowns, festival games/prizes and much more.
For the adults, we have numerous street vendors with everything from Wapples, which are waffles filled with apple cheesecake and caramel sauce, to locally crafted wares and many of the local artisans. MAD I Metalworks of Madeline Island will also have a cool car show set up on Bell Street
Featured are also several interactive events. Easily the most involving, and intriguing is the making of apple cider using a *cider press bike and apples gathered from all over the island. Make a tie dye shirt at Adventure Vacations or learn how to polish rocks at Ricky Rocks & JEM. We hope to have these and more to add to the enjoyment of Family Fall Fest on Madeline Island, a small-town festival for the whole family to enjoy! * While supplies last
