Aztalan Day- Annual Event
The Lake Mills/Aztalan Historical Society, Inc. hosts Aztalan Day the third Sunday in July at the museum site, from 12 a.m. to 4 p.m each year and has been for nearly 60 years!
On July 30, 1967 the first of many, Aztalan Day’s began at the Historical Society’s site adjacent to Aztalan State Park.
Located at the corner of CTH B and CTH Q, two miles east of downtown Lake Mills (N6284 CTH Q, Jefferson), the event is educational and fun for all ages.
Attendees can experience historic craft/trade demonstrations and collection sharing; in past years a blacksmith, flint knappers, various textile craftspeople, historic craft vendors, as well as educational displays of historical tools, pioneer and Indigenous artifacts, and volunteers shared their antique tractors and engines, and much more.
A featured presentation is held during the afternoon and varies each year. Check the current year's event information to learn more. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy learning more about our local history!
In addition to a food vendor for lunch options and drinks, the Historical Society Board will be selling mini homemade pies as a fundraiser!
Admission for adults is $5, seniors are $3, students, ages 6 to 18 are $3, and kids 5 years old and younger are free. Annual and lifetime members will get free admission when the member card is presented.
The Lake Mills Aztalan Historical Society, Inc. was founded in 1941 and has organized many programs and events over the decades but none have stood the test of time as Aztalan Day has.
The Society is a non- profit volunteer based organization and does not receive funds from local, county, state or federal entities, your support during our events such as Aztalan Day, is needed to continue the care of the historic site, museum and collections.
