Popplewood 4-H 19th Annual Ringle Harvest Day

Thanks for looking at our blog!  

Saturday, October 10, 2015 is the day!  We are excited for the event as it is so much fun!  Even in the snow and rain...which, thank the Lord, it will NOT be doing this year!  

If you are wondering what this is all about, let me give you the 411.

Ringle, Wisconsin is located on County Hwy Q (north) and Hwy 29.  We are 12 miles east of Wausau in Marathon County.  

We have over 100 vendor booths that wind through our rural town, on the sides of our roads, in open fields, in the mountain bay trail and Ringle municipal building parking lots.  It is not a terrible amount of walking as it is all connected through the walk way of the mountain bay trail and Ringle isn't that big.

We have several food vendors and the Ringle town hall is open with plenty of seating.  The Ringle fire department also has seating by their booth.  Food at both ends of the event.  

We also hire Kraft's Kuddly Kritters petting zoo who will be here in the morning.  

If you come, you may park in the church parking lot, On Q Collision parking lot and grass and along the roads.  Most vendor spaces are open enough that if you purchase something big, you may drive up to the booth or area for pickup. 

FREE event!

It really is a "picker's paradise" - best story in 19 years....a vendor sold a Nancy Ann doll for $25 - apparently it was rare - even the buyer didn't know - well, the buyer sold it on Ebay for over $2,500 - so, yes, there still are treasures to find!

We hope you come on out - Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
