Dousman Derby Days

Jul 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 11:30 pm


This year marks the 68th annual Dousman Derby Days in Dousman, Wisconsin. It is a great community event that has benefitted many service organizations in and around Dousman over the past 67 years. The Dousman Community Club plans to continue that partnership and funnel our proceeds back into our community. It takes many volunteers and tens of thousands of dollars to put on such an event. It also takes great partnerships, with local organizations, to make this event a success and see it grow. We hope that you can join us in making this year’s Dousman Derby Days a success!

Ya’ll have been asking (for years) and we finally have T-SHIRTS! We also have magnets for sale. Both are available at the Registration table at the Wisconsin State Frog Jump next Saturday and Sunday. We will be selling t-shirts for $15 and have both youth and adult sizes. The magnets are $2 and make great stocking stuffers!


Wisconsin State Frog Jump is having a coloring contest! Pick up your coloring sheet at Bullfrog Station & Carwash, Chamberlains by Juls Dousman or Ixonia Bank on Main Street in Dousman. All entries need to be turned into the Registration Table during DOUSMAN DERBY DAYS!
