Nutcracker in the Castle

Day Trip

Nutcracker in the Castle

Enjoy a festive trip full of shopping and Christmas treats! We'll begin with stops at Confections by Joel and Widmer’s Cheese in Theresa, WI where we will have ample time for samples and shopping.

Lunch will take place at Red Cabin at Green Acres, a family-owned and operated business that was featured recently on Wisconsin Foodie.

We'll have free time at two shops in Fond du Lac, which will be the perfect time to finish up your Christmas gift shopping.

The cornerstone of our day is stopping by the 13th annual season of Nutcracker in the Castle at the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh. In each of the mansion’s rooms, scenes from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker are reinterpreted through elaborate decorations. Scenes include the Nutcracker’s opening party scene, the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies and the Land of Sweets. Like the ballet, Nutcracker in the Castle presents a visual spectacle that fills spirits with joy every Christmas season. We'll have time on our own to walk through the mansion to view, plus our time includes a stop for a cupcake dessert straight from the Sugar Plum Fairy.
