    Come join us for this great community festival that provides an interactive learning experience for children of all ages to explore many varieties of transportation. Our hope is to have many different kinds of vehicles including police cars, tractors, dump trucks, ambulances, garbage trucks, etc. In addition the children will be entertained with a bouncy house, face painting, interactive play station, music and much more! Following the “Touch a Truck” event we will be playing The Planes Fire and Rescue movie on our jumbo screen! Movie is sponsored by Sadoff Iron & Metal Concessions will be available throughout this event.

    We are in need of 50 volunteers to make this fun family event possible. Volunteers will work two hour shifts in the concession area, bounce houses, or helping kids in and out of trucks. Please contact Jody LaPlante to volunteer at 920.232.5300 or jlaplante@ci.oshkosh.wi.us

Welcome to the Leach Amphitheater
Located at the mouth of the historic Fox River in downtown Oshkosh, where the water opens up to the breathtaking views of Lake Winnebago, the Leach Amphitheater is a spectacular venue for community festivals, live concerts of all types, company outings, and large-scale sporting or fund-raising events. A romantic gazebo overlooking the lake is a stunning setting for weddings, anniversary parties, or other more intimate gatherings.

Opened in May 2005, the Leach Amphitheater was built as a gift to the community of Oshkosh from the Leach family. This exciting outdoor venue includes a large performance stage, a state-of-the-art mix platform, two completely furnished concession stands, two large accessible restroom buildings, ample parking, and can accommodate up to 7,500 visitors.

All this is located on the bank of the Fox River, making the Leach Amphitheater an ideal place for water sport events as well as dry-land entertainment and activities.

The Leach is home to the weekly Waterfest Concert Series held each Thursday evening Memorial Day through Labor Day. Since 1986, Waterfest has hosted (both in Riverside Park and at the Leach Amphitheater) over 300 nationally known and local bands, and entertainers. Included have been the likes of the BoDeans, Alice Cooper, Gin Blossoms, Sonny Landreth, America, Little Feat, Poco, 38 Special, the Iguanas, Three Dog Night, Little River Band, just to name a few. Go to www.waterfest.org for more information.

The amphitheater is also home to the Oshkosh Half-Marathon, the Jaycees Brews N' Blues Fest, Oshkosh Irishfest and UW-Oshkosh’s Annual Dragon Boat Races, all of which bring thousands of people to the Leach.
