Woodstock Groundhog Days

Looks like this event has already taken place.

Thu, Feb 01 – Sun, Feb 04, 2024

121 W. Van Buren, Woodstock, IL 60098

Ever wish you could wake up in the same idyllic scenario over and over and over?

The event includes the ever-popular Prognostication in the Historic Woodstock Square when city mascot Woodstock Willie makes his annual weather forecast, but the event goes beyond what Phil Conners called "the excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."

This year enjoy Groundhog Day bingo, a dinner dance, catch screenings of the film at the historic Woodstock Theater, tour filming locations, join in on the Groundhog Day pancake breakfast and more.
