Take a peak at our events for the warmer weather.
The last Saturday of April, Rusty's and J.L.'s Pub, of Stevens Point, host the Canoes and Brews canoe run, down the wild and mighty Mill Creek.
Take a peak at our events for the cooler weather.
Every January 1st, we cut a large hole through the ice of the Wisconsin River in front of Rusty's and at high noon anyone bold enough, or foolish enough, to jump in is welcome. Feel free to join us; there is no cost to jump. Souvenir hats or t-shirts are available to purchase as well. Over the years, our Polar Bear swim has grown from a small group of 14 jumpers/100 spectators to over 80 "bears"/1500 spectators over the last couple of years.
The second Sunday of February brings ice racing enthusiasts to Rusty's to watch motorcycles and ATVs battle it out on a 1/3 mile ice oval.
The third weekend of February brings Rugby players from the Midwest to Stevens Point for a weekend of rugby played on the snow-packed ice of the Wisconsin River. New teams are always welcome - if you think your team has what it takes, contact Rusty's (715)341-2490 or Mike Williams (715)346-4928.
