This year, join us for a family movie under the stars! Also new is a Kids Entertainment stage on the front lawn of the museum! 

On September 6, 1962  a 20 lbs. piece of Russian Sputnik IV  landed in the middle of the street on the corner of N. 8th and Park. Sputnikfest is our way of bringing the community together to celebrate this momentous event.

Named one of the Top Five Funkiest Festivals in the country by  Readers Digest, this Wacky Tacky Festival is fast becoming a community favorite, with fun for the entire family.
There's food, music, raffles and contests for every age group and life form. Purchase a Sputnikfest t-shirt or poster at our merchandise tent, have your picture taken with a member of the 501st Legion, dress up in a spacey alien costume, or just join in the fun! You won't want to miss this.           
See you on September 12th at the corner of N. 8th and Park Streets in Manitowoc! 

"Sputnik landed here...Why don't you?"
