Founded in 1969, the Mount Horeb Summer Frolic is a community festival that raises money for the village’s parks, recreation, youth activities and other worthy projects. Over the years, dollars raised at the Frolic have gone toward the Aquatic Center expansion, Summer Frolic Sunrise Park, the free Wednesday Night Live community concert series, new playground equipment in the village, and efforts of the American Legion, Mount Horeb Area Historical Society and other local organizations. Organized completely by a committee of volunteers representing local service organizations, the Mount Horeb Summer Frolic is dedicated to making the Mount Horeb area a great place to live and raise a family.
The Frolic features games, rides, food, live music, a beer tent, bingo and more. The 2019 festival will be June 6–9 at Grundahl Park.
