Brodhead - Downtown Square - 1111 West 2nd Ave
AutumnFest is Saturday, September 27th

The days and nights begin to get a little cooler, the leaves begin to change and Brodhead’s AutumnFest is just a few days away.
This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday Sept 27th, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00p.m.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy the small town hospitality. There will be a plethora of things to do through-out the day.
Visitors can visit the farmers/craft market: participate in the unveiling of Brodhead’s second mural; eat at the food stands; have a drink at the beer tent; children can enjoy the pumpkin bowling; visit the Petting Zoo; and many other activities. People walking around the Square can also enjoy music from the Stateline Playboys. With a donation of $5.00 for adults and $3.00 children 12 and under – stroll on down to “Embrace the Race” take pleasure in a pontoon boat ride.
Trick or Treating is available at participating local businesses from 10 a.m. to noon; and $1.00 hayrides through Brodhead are available from 11a.m. to 3 p.m.
What really makes AutumnFest special, for many people, is the Chili Contest. Some of the best chefs for miles around bring in their special recipes, with their secret ingredients, to make some of the best chili. The smells from the chili, slowly cooking from early morning until a winner is selected, is enough to make people want to stand by the cooking tent and just take a deep breath.
The public is welcomed to take part in voting for the best chili. There is a $3.00 charge for the chili tasting.
At noon the costume parade will begin at the Gazebo.
At 2:45 p.m. the winners of the Chili Contest are announced.
At 3:15 p.m. Habitat for Humanity will begin the Duck Races.
More information about AutumnFest is available at the Brodhead Chamber of Commerce web site at 608-897-8411
