We host many great public events—check out what we have planned and mark your calendar. From holiday celebrations and special promotions to our live concert series during the summer, we host a variety of fun events throughout the year.



Snowshoe Trail

This winter explore Rib Mountain State Park on snowshoes.  In addition to the ungroomed trails, the Friends will groom a trail to the extent possible based on snowfall.


Access to the groomed trail is at the SW corner of the parking lot south of the Park Entrance Station/Office and the way is marked with ribbons.


SAT. JAN 7 5:00-7:00 PM


SAT. FEB 4 5:00-7:00 PM

Candlelight Hikes

We are REALLY excited since these are the first snowshoe hikes we've been able to host since January and February, 2020 due to COVID.  It will be good to be able to see all those smiling faces.  The Friends of Rib Mountain State Park have hosted these snowshoe hikes for over 20 years, giving people the opportunity to try something new without having to rent or buy snowshoes.  We think we've introduced hundreds or perhaps thousands of people to the sport of snowshoeing, an activity that spans the ages from 1-99!  If you can walk, you can snowshoe!

Start at the Friends Gathering Space.  An annual or daily park admission sticker is required.

A special thank you to Joel Braatz for providing the snowshoes!
