Farm/Art DTour Returns Oct 1-10, 2022

Join us this October for the Farm/Art DTour, returning to southern Sauk County with trailheads in Plain and Sauk City, WI. Every other year, site-responsive artworks and agri/cultural attractions punctuate this self-guided drive through 50 miles of Wisconsin’s Driftless Region. From small country churchyards to grazing cows to giant puppets to award-winning cheese factories, you never know what you’ll find around the next bend in the road. Join thousands of rural residents and urban visitors this fall as we celebrate live culture in all its forms. Plan your trip to Sauk County’s largest homegrown agritourism event.

What happened to Fermentation Fest?

Fermentation will bubble up here & there along the 50-mile DTour.

If you’ve been following us for a while, you may recall that the Farm/Art DTour, where live cultures converge, started in 2011 as a feature of Fermentation Fest. With the ongoing pandemic, we’re unable again this year to host a full roster of in-person fermentation classes. But there will still be fermentation-related experiences that bubble up from time to time over the ten days of the DTour (don’t worry, you’ll still be able to enjoy local beers, cheese and sourdough!) The DTour remains a vibrant live culture convergence and is particularly well-suited for the new reality of social distancing. This year, the DTour takes center stage with an abundance of artwork, performances, roadside poetry, food, and agri/cultural experiences. We look forward to seeing you October 1-10.
