Community

The Oconto Falls community contains all of the resources needed to enjoy a rich quality of life experience. Settled in 1846, Oconto Falls is located at the falls of the Oconto River, approximately 28 miles north of the City of Green Bay in Northeast Wisconsin.

Residents, businesses, and organizations in Oconto Falls enjoy a small town lifestyle with abundant recreational opportunities, while having convenient access to the commercial, cultural, and professional athletic attractions of the Green Bay and Fox Valley metropolitan area. The community boasts of a superior educational climate, fine medical facilities, and a diversified economic base.


Oconto Falls is home to the Oconto Falls Panthers. Over 1,700 students are educated within its buildings each year. The school district houses the area’s only Performing Arts Center with acts from around the world appearing each season. The field house allows for a variety of competitions with visitors from all over the state of Wisconsin.

The Falls Area Performing Arts Center (PAC) opened in 2002. The 754 seat facility provides an exceptional setting for music, drama, and the visual arts. It also serves as an outstanding venue for visiting performers and a fine arts series sponsored by the Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts.

While the PAC is located in the Oconto Falls High School, students from all levels use the facilities for concerts and other programs. In addition, the facility is available for rent by community and other organizations. The state of the art technology and well engineered acoustics enhance the audience experience and have resulted in many positive comments from professional artists who have performed in the venue.

The Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts is a vital partner of the PAC. The Friends of the Arts was established to work in partnership with the PAC to promote the arts in the school district and throughout Northeastern Wisconsin using both public resources and private philanthropy.

 


The City is also home to a regional center of Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. This satellite 9,000 square foot facility offers Associate Degree coursework in health sciences, business, public safety and trades. Additionally, many personal enrichment, health/fitness, and continuing education courses can be taken at the site.

No community is complete without the structural support of City services, and the City of Oconto Falls provides residents with around the clock fire and police protection. The City’s utility and street and maintenance departments are out and about every day keeping the City clean and running smoothly. A public library is also part of the landscape of Main Street, Oconto Falls and supports avid readers through access to a network of libraries as well as an inventory of its own. Computers, wireless access and a variety of interesting programs are regular features of the library.
