Let’s talk Turkey and Deer – Thanksgiving and Deer Widows’ Weekend

People always think that when the colder weather creeps up, everything slows down for the season. This could not be further from the truth in Delavan, WI! Although we do pack up our shorts and store the boats for the winter, November has a lot going on.

Deer Widows’ Weekend

The opening of the 2018 deer hunting season is November 17th. For hunters and non-hunters alike, this date means something… the start Deer Widows Weekend! Come hang out at Staller Estate Winery’s Ladies Day! Enjoy some wine, and have some fun crafting and painting wine glasses! Guys, as well as gals, can get a taste of autumn by sampling a selection of Sonoma Cellar’s favorites at their Autumn Getaway Tasting. Ladies get a special treat while their guys are away at Ol’ Wisco Bar & Grill’s Magic Mike show. A Las Vegas styled choreographed production, also doubling as a fundraiser/ pet food drive for Lakeland Animal Shelter!


Next week, the hunters will be back, and family members will be gathering as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. Collect the little ones and bring them to the Aram Public Library to learn more about Native Americans and the true history of the Thanksgiving at We’re the Same, but Different program on November 19th from 4 – 5 pm.  Kids will enjoy arts, dance, and culture shared by local Native Americans.

The library’s DIY Make and Take Holiday Pie class is a great way to enjoy family time and tackle some of the holiday prep on November 20 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Your pie will be ready to bake at home or freeze to save for future events. Space is limited, so please call and check for availability at 262-728-3111. If the family is looking for something fun to do while waiting for the big meal, scoot out to the Delavan Lake Store and test your knowledge at their Pie & Music Trivia, on November 21st from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.


Thursday is the big day! Some people start bright and early, getting side dishes, pies and of course the turkey set and ready to go in the oven just before the family begins to gather. For those who are visiting in Delavan this holiday or those who just don’t like to cook, you do not have to miss out!  

Enjoy a beautiful view of Delavan Lake while you indulge in Lake Lawn Resort’s annual Thanksgiving Day Feast buffet in the Frontier Restaurant. Or let Lake Lawn pack it up and take it home with Thanksgiving Made Easy – Lake Lawn Resort’s Dinner to Go! Reservations are required for both, so call now and let them help you plan your meal. To go orders must be placed by Monday, November 19, 2018.

If you follow the Delavan Lake shore line, another part of the community comes together to celebrate the things they are thankful for. They invite you to join them at Delavan’s Community Thanksgiving Dinner. The Town of Delavan Community Park pavilion will be open from 11 am to 3 pm serving complimentary meals to all guests and making deliveries to home bound friends. All they ask for is a donation to help continue this 10-year tradition into the following year. To setup deliveries to the home bound, please call (262) 749-4621.

Black Friday & Small Business Saturday

When Friday arrives, it’s time to hit the stores for all the deals of Black Friday and Small Business Saturday! On Friday, grab your coffee special, first, at the Delavan Lake Store for National Espresso Day. Then make a lap to check out the Black Friday Open House at The Amish Kitchen, located across the street from the new Fleet Farm. Saturday, the brick street of Historic Downtown will be lined with businesses full of deals for their Holiday Open House. No matter who is on your list, you will be able to find that perfect something. The Relative Recovery Bloody Mary Bar at Delavan Lake Store will close out the weekend of food and shopping perfectly, as you sort through your super shopping finds on Sunday.
