Since 1986, The community of Dodgeville and surrounding Iowa County have coordinated a special celebration honoring some of our greatest American heroes–our farmers. Recognizing the importance of agriculture to this largely rural area, the citizens developed Iowa County Farmers Appreciation Day held in Dodgeville on the second weekend of July each year.
In 2002, Dodgeville opened its new Visitor Information Center. Now visitors to the community that’s at the heart of Iowa County and beautiful Southwest Wisconsin have a resource to help them learn more about the area.
Most of us have heard of the now famous ‘Cows on Parade’ art exhibit in Chicago where in 1999 hundreds of cows were painted, posed and all gussied up for the city by Chicago artists. Spring Green’s Albany Courtyard has her very own colorful "Cow on Parade".
