Artists Bring Added Creativity to Delafield with Art Walk

DELAFIELD, Wis.— On May 15, the Delafield Area Chamber of Commerce will invite residents and visitors to stretch their dollars and legs at the same time at the Spring Art Walk: an annual celebration of creativity and community held in the city’s downtown. Free to the public, guests are invited to watch live artists as they work and browse the collections with pieces available for purchase. With roughly 40 downtown businesses participating, 2009’s installment will be the largest in the event’s history.

“It’s a very casual event, and it’s a lot of fun,” said Bonnie Dixon, Delafield Chamber of Commerce 2008-2009 President. “Families are encouraged to bring their children; the event is geared towards the entire family.”

Many businesses participating in the Art Walk, which begins at 5pm and runs until 9pm, will hold special hours with art located inside or in front of their businesses. Artists working in a wide-ranging list of genres will participate—from face painting to canvas to sculpture to fiber art.

“There’s a lot of diversity with the Art Walk,” Dixon said. “There’s something for everyone.”

Delafield is located among the tranquil water and rolling hills of Waukesha County’s “Lake Country” and is home to 6,500 residents. For more information, please call the City of Delafield Chamber of Commerce at 262/646-8100 or visit www.VisitDelafield.org.

The City of Delafield becomes an Ice Age Trail Community

Delafield, WI — When complete, the Ice Age National Scenic Trail will cross approximately 132 communities in 31 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. Along the way, the Trail takes users to some of the best glacial features in the world, provides opportunities for personal rejuvenation, is an outdoor classroom, and is an economic resource for communities. These assets make the Ice Age Trail a welcome addition to many communities ranging from small roadside stops to bustling metropolises.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance has established the Ice Age Trail Community program, designed to help communities leverage the Trail as an economic and social engine, while promoting the Ice Age National Scenic Trail to community members and visitors alike. Commitment to this program represents an agreement to cross promote one another, building healthy and vibrant communities.

The City of Delafield is the most recent addition to the Ice Age Trail Community roster. Tucked in the heart of the Kettle Moraine, Delafield is rich with outdoor beauty and year-round recreational activities. It offers casual and award-winning dining, lodging, specialty shopping and unique historic sites. Delafield is full of friendly faces and stays true to its small town ideals.

To celebrate this designation the Alliance and City of Delafield plan to host a National Trails Day event on June 3rd, 2017. Details to follow.

The Ice Age Trail, one of only eleven National Scenic Trails, is a thousand-mile footpath highlighting Wisconsin's world-renowned Ice Age heritage and natural resources.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance is a non-profit volunteer- and member-based organization established in 1958 that works to create, support and protect the Ice Age Trail. Visit www.iceagetrail.org for hiking information and volunteer opportunities.
