The Village of Saukville is an important stop on Wisconsin’s Ethnic Settlement Trail. Established at the crossroads of two military roads, Dekora Road and Sauk Trail, Saukville became the first European settlement in Ozaukee County. We are proud of our historical significance and strive to maintain old world charm in our downtown area park with wind brick paths, old fashioned streetlights and a turn of the century bandstand. We invite you to explore our history through a walking tour highlighting 31 historical buildings and sites.
Today, Saukville is filled with beautiful neighborhood parks and is home to many great community events and recreational activities. Join us Wednesday evenings during the summer for “Live at the Triangle,” a free outdoor concert series featuring a variety of musical talent. Stop by on Sunday mornings from mid-June through October for our Farmers’ Market in the heart of downtown.
Experience a classic, small town USA Fourth of July celebration beginning with a parade at 1:00 p.m. and ending with fireworks at dusk. Come for Ozaukee County’s National Night Out, a crime and drug prevention event promoting law enforcement and community partnerships. Don’t miss the Saukville Scare, a costumed 5k held the last Saturday in October each year. Check out the Classic Cars at our auto show in September or enjoy the company and entertainment at the last stop on the annual Poker Run.
Other exceptional Saukville area attractions include Tendick Park, home to an 18-hole disc golf course, nature trails and a Milwaukee River canoe launch; the Cedarburg Bog, one of southern Wisconsin’s largest and most diverse wetlands; and Riveredge Nature Center, considered one of the premier nature centers in the Great Lakes Region. For golfers, we offer The Bog, a target course designed by Arnold Palmer, or Hawthorne Hills, a beautiful public course. For a further glimpses into the past, visit Pioneer Village, a collection of 20 historic buildings dating from the 1840s to the early 1900s located on County Hwy. I a few miles north of the village.
It’s hard to decide where to begin exploring Saukville, but we’re sure that no matter what you choose, you’ll love it as much as we do!
