Oshkosh, WI: What you need to know

Just as the waterways of Oshkosh aided the growth of its early lumber industry and the city itself, the Fox River and Lake Winnebago today help shape the community's identity with natural beauty and endless recreation and entertainment. First Saturday gallery walks, live music, a farmers market and other events draw people to a significantly revitalized downtown district, while residents and visitors alike converge for huge events such as EAA AirVenture (the largest gathering of aviation enthusiasts in the world) and music festivals Rock USA and Country USA. Residents support the athletic teams of University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and in 2017 the city became home to the Wisconsin Herd, an NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks. The city’s transportation network includes the convenience of Interstate 41 along with U.S. routes and Wisconsin highways, and residents have access to good public schools, two top hospitals and several medical clinics.
