There’s always something to do when you’re in Delavan. Every year on the 4th of July, the city hold their annual “Let Freedom Ring” celebration. The day begins with a pancake breakfast at the Fire Department. The event only costs a donation that goes directly to the department. After breakfast there is a parade that goes down the streets of the town, which is followed by family friendly activities at Veteran’s Park. The event wraps up with a firework display at the end of the night. On Halloween, the Delavan has a city wide trick-or-treat event. Trick-or-treating is held earlier in the night and is followed by a Halloween themed parade and ends with a haunted house at the American Legion. If you’re looking for more events, you can find a full calendar here.
The city also has a wide range of things to do that are not events. Golfers can choose between two courses in Delavan, the Delbrook Golf Course or the Majestic Oaks at Lake Lawn Resort. Both of these courses offer unique challenges for golfers of all levels, and Delbrook even offers 27 holes! Anglers can fish on either Delavan Lake or Lake Comus for a chance at some big game fish like Pike or Bass. In the snowy months, take the kids to the Rudy Lange Sledding Hill for some winter wonderland fun! The hill has lights on throughout winter, so the fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. For a wine tasting you won’t forget, check out Staller Estate Winery located between Delavan and Lake Geneva. The winery offers tours, wine tastings, and large group events.
