Hodag Festival Grounds

The Hodag Country Festival is an annual country music festival that has been a staple of Wisconsin scene since 1978, drawing in country music enthusiasts from across the globe.

The Hodag Country Festival usually takes place on the second weekend of July each year at the Hodag Festival Grounds in Road, Rhinelander, Wisconsin. The festival’s grounds are situated on a picturesque 40-acre site, providing ample space for attendees to enjoy the music and festivities.

The festival’s unique name, ‘Hodag’, is derived from a folklore creature reported to exist in Rhinelander in 1893. The creature is now a symbol of the city and a fitting namesake for a festival that has become a significant part of Rhinelander’s identity.

It is renowned for hosting some of the biggest names in country music. Over the years, the festival has seen performances from country music legends like Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Neal McCoy, Brooks and Dunn, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Lee Brice, and Toby Keith.
