Markesan's signature festival for the past 80 years, June Dairy Days is set to return this year on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 9-11, 2017. 


 June Dairy Days' history can be traced backed to 1937 when free milk was given away at a local bank in the Village of Markesan. As the event continued to grow, June Dairy Days was officially named in 1977 to celebrate the festival's 40th anniversary.

June Dairy Days continues to usher in the summer season in Markesan and all of Green Lake County while celebrating the area’s rich agricultural traditions.
