Don’t Miss the Badger State Games This Winter

The Badger State Games are held twice a year in the Wausau Area. The summer games moved here in 2012, but the winter games have been held in Wausau since they started in 1989. The Badger State Games are part of the National Congress of State Games and feature a broad array of Olympic-style sporting events for amateur athletes throughout the winter season. Though the Winter Badger State Games format has changed a bit over the years, it currently features several winter events over a span of three months.

This year marks the 35th edition of the Badger State Games, offering plenty of excitement in the months ahead. Here’s a sampling of what you can expect throughout the season.
