Viroqua, Wisconsin is one of the most beautiful and unique small cities in Wisconsin, if not in the entire nation. For a city of 4,400, Viroqua offers abundant choices in entertainment, education, shopping and healthcare.
From the excitement of Wild West Days, the challenge of an 18-hole golf course, the culture of a play at the handsomely restored Temple Theatre, the relaxation of fly fishing the class one trout streams or the thrill of a hockey game at the indoor ice arena, Viroqua is the place to go for entertainment.
Whether it is the award winning public schools, the Christian guidance of our two religious academies, the experiential learning at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School and Youth Initiative High School, or the continuing education at Western Wisconsin Technical College, the number of educational options makes Viroqua truly unique.
Listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places, Viroqua's downtown district is home to dozens of specialty shops. Viroqua is also the center of one of the greatest organic farming regions of the United States. Each Saturday in June through October, farmers and artisans from across the countryside come into our historic district to sell their fruits, vegetables, art and other items at the farmers market. These are just a few of the features that make Viroqua one of the principle shopping destination in Southwestern Wisconsin.
Whether it is the traditional medicine of ever-expanding Vernon Memorial Hospital and Gundersen Lutheran Viroqua Clinic, the healing arts of dozens of holistic medicine practitioners, or the numerous chiropractors, dentists, marriage and family counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists, Viroqua offers a wealth of choices in healthcare.
Notice from the City of Viroqua Water Utility, 02/04/2014
To prevent frozen water services and water mains, the water utility is asking City residents to run a pencil stream of water to avoid problems of freeze-ups . With a warm up of temperatures, frost will be driven downward and the threat would continue. The water should be left running out of one faucet until the water department says it is safe to turn the water off. Credit will be given on the future water billing.
