Here in Wisconsin, we never let winter get in the way of a good outdoor event. Stay at a Wisconsin B&B and you’ll always know you have a warm, cozy bed and warm, homemade breakfast to come back to. So here are our picks for some terrific outdoor fests for each weekend in February, with links to B&Bs in the area, starting with the 24th annual Hot Air Affair in Hudson, February 1-3. The weekend includes hot air balloon launches, a parade and geocaching. The Snowflake Ski Jump Tournament will be held in Westby, February 1-2. There’s the Sturgeon Stampede in Fond du Lac, February 8-10, with skating, broomball, ice bowling, and ice sailing. The centerpiece of the Manawa Snodeo in Manawa, February 15-16, is the vintage snowmobile and motorcycle racing under the lights. Rounding out the short month is the American Birkebeiner Cross-Country Ski Event in Hayward, February 21-23. Also, feel free to take a gander at Travel Wisconsin’s Snow Conditions Report and click on your favorite activity to see what the conditions are like. Feeling hardy? We hope so.
