The festival's events include three unique concerts, sing-a-longs, food and root beer floats. Also featured this year will be a 1914 timeline, vintage dress display, a "pianorama", and a showing of "The Entertainers," an award-winning documentary about the World Championship Contest of Old-Time Piano Players. There will be a pizza party on Friday night and a chicken parmesan dinner Saturday night, along with a farewell Sunday brunch buffet!

The headliner performers for the 2014 Ragtime Festival are Brian Holland (TX,) Danny Coots (TN,) and Dr. Dave Majchrzak (MO).  There will be a guest appearance at each concert by Wisconsin's own Cody Clauson Trio.

Anyone who enjoys listening to, learning about, and performing Ragtime, early jazz, blues, and vaudeville music will find entertainment at this year's Ragtime Festival.

The Ragtime Festival's goals are to provide top quality entertainment for all ages, have fun, and raise money for a local charitable organization. This year, all festival proceeds will benefit the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic.
