Fall Fest on the Fox
Each September since 2000, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has hosted Fall Fest on the Fox a celebration of Oshkosh’s waterways and the “bridges” that connect the greater Oshkosh community with the University’s students, staff and faculty. The two-day festival also welcomes the families of UW Oshkosh students to tour campus and enjoy the collegial atmosphere along the banks of the Fox River.
This year, we invite you to join us as we celebrate our 12th annual Fall Fest on the Fox. In keeping with the Fall Fest tradition, we will once again be serving our fabulous Fall Fest Fish Fry on Friday, Sept. 21. It's an all-you-care-to-eat buffet featuring deep fried and baked fish, carved beef and a variety of other entrees. Enjoy live jazz music and suprises for the kids in the main dining area. After dinner, take in the brilliant colors of fall while touring the UW Oshkosh campus on a horse drawn carriage tour.
After the fish fry, plan to stroll through Reeve Memorial Union and visit University Books & More to browse through our collection of books and logo apparel. Experience our climbing wall and golf simulator at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
Then, join us on Saturday morning for a hearty breakfast and meet Chancellor Richard Wells during our annual "Breakfast with the Chancellor." Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
Saturday afternoon will feature the Oshkosh Dragon Boat Race and Festival in downtown Oshkosh. 20 person teams from throughout the area will be racing along the banks of the Fox River. Plan to visit and enjoy live entertainment, family activities and concessions.
While you are here, make time for the other exciting happenings on our campus and in our community. Whether you are a student, a parent, or a community friend, we invite you to join us for an Oshkosh tradition: Fall Fest on the Fox.
