Garden Expo & Garden Talk
Radio Show - May 11, 2018

A local spring garden
Bayfield annually welcomes spring by hosting WPR's Garden Talk Radio Show and a walking tour of "Bayfield in Bloom" gardens.

While there are interesting things to see and do at most times in Bayfield, we most enjoy the festive atmosphere of the annual fall Apple Festival - which draws up to 60,000 people during the 3 day weekend! See our Bayfield Events Calendar (below) for more ideas on things to do and see in Bayfield.

During the winter and holiday season there are several Christmas and Holiday activities going on commencing with the holiday tree lighting ceremony on the day after Thanksgiving. The Rittenhouse Inn has a nice Thanksgiving dining and lodging package that we will catch this year. When winter arrives, there is cross-country skiing and downhill skiing at Mt. Ashwabay, the big Sled Dog race, the fantastic Bayfield Ice Caves and winter carnivals in Bayfield and Mount Ashwabay.

bayfield homes

 

Bayfield residents have done a fine job preserving the historic character of the town. A number are listed on the National Register of historic sites.

 

walking across the bayfield iron bridge
Among the historic structures is this 1912 Iron Bridge constructed by Wausau Iron Works. Underneath the Iron Bridge, there's also a neat little wooded hiking trail running up the ravine. It is so secluded it is hard to grasp you are only minutes from "downtown" Bayfield.

Downtown is packed full of interesting boutiques, funky restaurants & bars, outdoor recreation shops, art galleries & artisan shops, etc.
