Home of Walleye Days
The Nekoosa Area, located in Central Wisconsin has much to offer–from shopping to a variety of services to industries to recreational! The City of Nekoosa is a small residential community with a strong sense of place. What began as a fur trapping and trading community, the community’s prime location on the Wisconsin River soon led to other industries. For more than a quarter-century, thousands of anglers from around the Midwest have participated in the annual Nekoosa Walleye Days, an event that has inspired many to come back year after year. Riverside Park, a striking spacious site near Nekoosa’s business quarter is home to several large events including Walleye Days in the spring and the Giant Pumpkin Festival in the fall.
