Czech Capital of Wisconsin
The thriving city of Hillsboro serves as the eastern gateway to Vernon County. Bohemian immigrants from what is now the Czech Republic originally settled the area. Cesky Den (Czech Days), held the second weekend of June, celebrates the city’s heritage. Thousands of visitors come to Firemen’s Park to enjoy traditional food and music, arts and crafts and other festivities. The city also holds an annual Fireman’s Labor Day Fair, featuring four days of fun leading up to an exciting Labor Day parade.
