Witwen Concerts at the Campground
In 2003, the idea of using the Witwen Park and Campground to present family-appropriate outdoor summer concerts for the area became reality! Under the guidance and assistance of area musicians Jerry Stich and Jean Powell, and partially funded by a grant from the UW Extension Arts and Culture Committee, the first series of Concerts at the Campground was presented on the grounds.
Witwen Park & Campground, located in Sauk County, Wisconsin, 7 miles west of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac on County Hwy E, is the site of the 11th Summer Concert Series. These concerts are open to the public. Free-will support is welcome and appreciated.
Come and bring your friends for a relaxing summer evening of music in a country setting where early settlers and Native Americans camped near the Honey Creek many years ago. Parking is available on the grounds and nearby. The historic tabernacle, which is handicapped accessible, is used in the event of rain. (Heavy rainfall may cause cancellation, postponement, or relocation.)
The grounds open at 4 pm, and concerts begin at 6:30 pm. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Feel free to bring your own picnic supper. Food can be purchased on the grounds beginning at 4:30 pm. BBQ sandwiches, Wyttenbach brats and hot dogs, chips, pies from Leystra's, coffee, soda, water and ice cream are available.
Local Boy Scout Troop 173 assists in serving the food and receives the profits from the food sales. The Scouts also sell popcorn during the concerts to raise money for their troop activities.
Witwen Park & Campground is part of the family homestead of Web and Ruth Sprecher and is being maintained and supported by their children, Dale and Cynthia Sprecher (owners), Marceil Tooley, Vaun and Marion Sprecher, Eileen Luetscher, Phil and Flora Sprecher, and their families.
The family also acknowledges the interest and contributions of time and effort by many friends.
Disabled Parking is available - concerts may be enjoyed without leaving the car.
