If there’s one thing that’s for certain, it’s that no one does New Year’s Eve like Wisconsin! Famous for being the cheese capital of the country, anyone who chooses to visit always knows that they’re going to sample some tasty local cheeses and may even run into a few people wearing cheese hats on game day (go Packers!). However, if you’ve never been to the area during New Year’s Eve, you may be shocked to see one of our beloved traditions take place at the Plymouth Arts Center.
Rather than counting down as a shimmering ball slowly descends to the ground this New Year’s Eve, the people of Plymouth, WI will watch as a giant wedge of cheese drops for the 8th year in a row. It may sound strange to some, but it’s a ton of fun for the whole family and honestly, it’s one of those things that you won’t believe until you see it.
The highly anticipated cheese drop will take place in the parking lot right next to the Plymouth Arts Center, which is conveniently located five minutes from our bed and breakfast hotel at N4922 Hillwind Road in Plymouth, WI. If you happen to be staying in the area for the New Year, stop on over and grab a complimentary cup of hot chocolate in the Art Center’s plaza and embrace the festivities! Trust us when we tell you that you’re guaranteed to enjoy yourself!

Christmas day is only two weeks away and from there, we’re on the fast track to 2014. Have you figured out your New Year’s Eve plans yet? Well if you’re going to be around the Plymouth area during the festivities, then we would highly suggest that you check out the New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball. The events have proven to be a big hit for many years now and we guarantee that a great time will be had by all!
Hosted at the Plymouth Arts Center, which is a mere five minutes from our inn, the masquerade will be held on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 from 7pm to 12:30am. Throughout the evening of masked fun, guests will be treated to a delicious buffet dinner catered by Millhome Supper Club, a complimentary glass of wine and cheese table, dancing to Smooth Groove Quartet and one very special display at midnight.
Now if you’re from around the area, you may have already heard about this, but all of our out-of-towners will be in for a big surprise when the countdown to 2014 begins. Rather than dropping a shimmering ball as the clock ticks down, Plymouth does something that can only be seen in the cheese capital of the country: the big cheese drop! This year will mark the 7th annual cheese drop and let us tell you – it is quite a site to see.
Dinner-dance tickets will be sold at $30 per person in advance and dance only tickets will be $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Dance-only guests will be invited to join the festivities at 8:30pm and costumes are optional for all attendees. For more information on the event, visit plymoutharts.org.
