Downtown Wausau River District: Farmers Market, Dining, Concerts & Events

Step outside the Jefferson Street Inn and step into an entertainment mecca. The Greek Revival-style Grand Theater hosts an incredible variety of performances including Broadway shows, music and dance, and there are a half-dozen other theaters in Wausau too. The 400 Block or city square has a permanent outdoor stage and is the venue for weekly concerts in the summer, a farmers' market through fall, and ice skating in the winter. Shop the surrounding River District with its brick paved streets and renovated 19th century buildings. You'll find boutique and specialty stores, a dining scene made for foodies, and a hip night life you'd never expect in a central Wisconsin city.
