Don’t miss the Whoville Holiday Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 in Downtown Oshkosh

A Whoville Holiday returns to Downtown Oshkosh on Nov. 18, with a full day of family fun that even the Grinch won’t be able to resist.

The 3rd annual event is sponsored by the businesses and organizations in the Downtown Business Improvement District.
There is still time to get tickets for Breakfast with the Grinch, which has moved to the Oshkosh Convention Center to better accommodate the large crowd it draws. There are two seatings: 8:45 a.m. and 10 a.m. Registration is online only at www.downtownoshkosh.com.

Beyond breakfast, there are plenty of other Whoville activities going on throughout Downtown Oshkosh to get families in the holiday spirit:

Whoville Headquarters in Opera House Square
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Pick up a map of all the day’s activities and Whoville specials at Downtown Oshkosh businesses.
Special appearance by Miss Oshkosh and Miss Oshkosh’s Outstanding Teen in the Square.

Free showings of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”
Time Theater
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (movies start on the hour)

A Grinchmas Celebration at the Oshkosh Public Library
10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Under the Dome
Grinchy good fun includes reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Jingle Bell Toss and Happy Holiday Plinko games; a holiday craft; and a family reading corner. Come in your best Whoville attire to get a photo taken and enter our costume contest. Enter at the old front doors on Washington Avenue. This event is free and open to the public.

Free horse & carriage rides
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. leaving from the parking lot behind 459/461 N. Main St.

Throughout the holidays Downtown visitors can see the Whoville displays and window paintings by students in the Gifted and Talented Art Program of the Oshkosh Area School District.

For folks who want to transform their inner Grinch this season, Downtown Oshkosh is collecting donations for the Oshkosh Area Food Pantry, Christine Ann Center and the Oshkosh Area Humane Society. From Nov. 16-Dec. 31 drop off items for any of those organizations at BMO Harris Bank, 50 Pearl Ave. Find wish lists for these charities at www.downtownoshkosh.com.
