Waunakee’s third annual public art project, Trains on Main, will come to an end at the Wauktoberfest Celebration grounds. Ten trains made by Waunakee artists will be auctioned off, with 100% of the proceeds to benefit local charities.

The steel train cutouts were donated by Endres Manufacturing Co., and artists were given free reign to enhance them however they saw fit. The trains have been on display at the Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce since June, and now will all be available for purchase on September 17.

The auction is a live, in-person event held on the main stage at Endres Manufacturing.Co.’s Wauktoberfest Celebration; a fitting end to the Wisconsin themed project. Many train artists will be present for you to meet and to see their creations auctioned off. Starting bids for all trains will begin at $200.00, with proceeds benefitting two local programs: the Endres Manufacturing Co. Foundation and the Waunakee Creative Economy Initiative.

Calling All of Waunakee!

Friday, August 18, 2017
Between Madison Street and Bacon Street
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

The Village of Waunakee and The Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to create a Waunakee promo video. The goal of the video is to promote community pride and bring positive promotion to Waunakee’s business community. We hope to use the video in community marketing efforts in order to attract visitors to Waunakee, and even inspire people to live and bring business here.

There is a special opportunity as part of this video for all of Waunakee to participate! We will be closing down Main Street between Madison Street and Bacon Street (in the area of Summit Credit Union, Madison & Main Apartments, and Yo!). Essentially we’ll have a party on Main Street, with the help of a singer/songwriter who we’ve hired to make this video extra special. We want people to have fun, dance and show off the joy we have in living and/or working in Waunakee.


All are welcome–young and old alike. Bring pets if you’d like and be sure to wear your Waunakee attire!
