You got questions, we’ve got answers…

Ocoochapalooza is a block party designed to draw awareness to downtown Richland Center. This sometimes neglected section of the wonderful Driftless Area features interesting architecture, neat stores & restaurants, lots of intriguing arts and artists, and more characters than a Steinbeck novel. Food, games & activities, business promotions, a children’s parade, Farmer’s Market, and a full day/night of live music!

ocoochteam2014Neighborhood Housing Services of Southwest Wisconsin (then NHS of Richland County) sent a team of 8 resident leaders to the Community Leadership Institute in Sacramento in October 2013.  The CLI is a national conference organized by NeighborWorks America to encourage resident engagement and give people the tools to create better communities themselves. They received a grant to help with community building and decided to use those funds to create and organize Ocoochapalooza! We are proud to announce that the 2014 CLI group is using their funds and time to help Ocoochapalooza 2015 grow!

Admission is FREE for the day. The only event that is charged is the Headline show on June 6th at 6pm at the Richland Center Performing Arts Center, 182 N Central Ave, Richland Center, WI 53581. Tickets for the show will be $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Stay tuned for ticket vendors and their location. Remember, there will be FREE music all throughout the day too!

There are municipal parking lots in and near downtown.  Stay tuned for our announcement and coordination of where public parking with be accessible.
