    Discover Wisconsin to Feature Fort Atkinson

    April 29, 2020
    Fort Atkinson Featured in Discover Wisconsin Episode on May 15-16


    A project that has been in the works since 2018 is set to virtually air to the community via an online Facebook Premiere Party. Tune in to Facebook on Friday, May 15 at 6:30 p.m. to watch an early viewing of Fort Atkinson’s Discover Wisconsin episode.
     
    A virtual invitation will be shared on the Chamber’s Facebook page, along with reminders of the air date. As part of the episode’s promotion, trivia questions about featured businesses and locations will be posted on the Chamber’s Facebook page during the weeks leading up to the virtual premiere and even during the half-hour episode. A winner will be randomly chosen for each question to win a gift card from a local business.
     
    Discover Wisconsin is the nation’s longest running tourism show focused on showcasing Wisconsin's treasures around the state. Beginning in 2018, a Discover Wisconsin host and camera crew visited, interviewed, and captured the beauty of Fort Atkinson. The goal of this episode was to highlight the wide variety of recreational opportunities available year-round, and the unique stories of the people behind the businesses and activities in Fort Atkinson.
     
    “We are so excited to share the finished product of Fort Atkinson’s Discover Wisconsin episode,” said Fort Atkinson Chamber Tourism Manager, Katie Carey. “I think the episode perfectly captures the essence of Fort Atkinson – the sense of community, the natural beauty, and the hidden gems people might not know about. We are so thankful for all the community members and businesses who helped make this a possibility.”
     
    Along with the episode, the partnership between Fort Atkinson and Discover Wisconsin will continue to drive tourism to this area through social media, blog posts, mentions on The Cabin podcast, and a to-be-announced giveaway. Jefferson County as a whole has been getting quite a bit of publicity from Discover Wisconsin, since several area communities have also been featured this year.
