Best Music Festival

Drumroll please: The Blue Ox Music Festival (5024 Crescent Ave., Eau Claire) – a weekend-long event that brings together lovers of bluegrass and related music – topped the charts this year! While the storms caused a bit of frenzy this summer, Rock Fest (24447 County Highway S, Cadott) still managed to come in second (and the D-O-double-G made the lineup for next year, so get ready). Eau Claire loves its country music, and as such, Country Fest (24447 County Highway S, Cadott – same location as Rock Fest!) rounds out our list of Chippewa Valley Favorites.  – Natalie Rosenkranz
