It's often hard to contain their excitement.

Music is serious business.

At music festivals across America, a hero appears whenever we need him most.

To be fair, this noble hero appears at all music festivals everywhere.

Some of the fans have their own bands.

Sweaty whiskers and Pepsi, y'all.

Eaux Claires was made for romance.

Their strength and balance are second to none.

They had the time of their life.
They had the time of their life. They never felt this way before.

They stay true to their roots.

When representing Wisconsin, they pull no punches.

Hush and be still as the splendid Eaux Claires Spirit Animal quietly steps from behind a birch tree and welcomes you to the merch tent.
