Join us in a downtown far, far away…
for a fun day in Downtown Oshkosh filled with Star Wars activities!
WOOKIEE WALK SCAVENGER HUNT (FREE)
Gather your friends and family to form a team and complete activities at over 20 downtown businesses. There will be seek & find, trivia questions, games and photo tasks listed on your activity sheet that must be completed at certain businesses. Have fun accomplishing tasks to earn raffle tickets. Turn your tickets in for a chance to win the grand prize gift basket (filled with goodies from downtown businesses)! This is a family friendly event with no age limits or restrictions. We recommend team sizes of 2-5 but there is no limit to the size of your team. You may pick up your scavenger hunt at the Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau (100 N Main St Suite 112) from 11am-1pm. You do not need to stay the entire event time. You can complete as many tasks as you would like to, turn in your raffle tickets at Adventure Games & Hobby (408 N Main St) and leave at any time. The raffle baskets will close at 5pm and will be drawn that evening and winners will be notified for pickup. Costumes are encouraged and each team player in a costume will earn an extra raffle ticket during registration. The first 50 players to register will receive a light saber sponsored by the Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau and Downtown Oshkosh BID. We expect that most teams will take about 60-90 minutes to complete all the tasks. Please take in consideration that there will be a fair amount of walking involved, that you will be entering businesses and completing tasks.
*Team activity sheets will be distributed at the Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau located at 100 N Main Street Suite 112 beginning at 11am until 1pm.
