Countdown To Spring!
MSM Artisan Application

Wisconsin winter won't last forever! Soon enough, the birds and yellow school buses will return to Old World Wisconsin. Old World Foundation has several fun events to help tide you over until Old World Wisconsin reopens this spring.

We'll fly to Never Land in April, when families are invited to Old World Wisconsin for Tea Time featuring Peter Pan. J. M. Barrie's classic children's book will inspire the activities. Go on a treasure hunt. Decorate a pirate's chest or fairy house. Savor tea and treats served on china dishes.

Lace up your running shoes!
The Bustle Hustle 5K Run/Walk is great for all ages and most energy levels. Prizes awarded to top finishers in each age division. Old World Wisconsin WILL be open following the race, so you can spend the day!
