ARTS AT THE WAELDERHAUS
In 2017, Kohler Foundation is pleased to once again present a series of unique cultural events - free to the public* - at the historic Waelderhaus in Kohler. There are no tickets for these events, but reservations are encouraged, due to space limitations. Make reservations by phone (920-458-1972) or email. Suggested $5.00 donation at the door helps defray the costs of these and future events. Performances begin at 2:00 P. M. To learn more about the history of Waelderhaus, click here.

20th Annual GINGERBREAD FESTIVAL
During the 2016 holiday season, the 20th Annual Great Gingerbread Festival welcomed a record 8,700 visitors to the Waelderhaus. Delicious gingerbread creations submitted by local school and community groups filled the Saal (great hall) and free musical performances were held each Saturday and Sunday during the season. Visitors voted for their favorite gingerbread creations, and at the end of the Festival, the highest vote-getters in each age category were awarded cash prizes for their classrooms!
Join Kohler Foundation for our free festive holiday tradition again in 2017, from November 24 to December 30. Daily tours of the Waelderhaus are still offered at 2:00PM, 3:00PM, and 4:00PM (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Weekend musical performances feature local and regional performers of all ages.
