The World Championship Snowmobile Watercross is held each year in July at Memory Lake Park in Grantsburg, WI and is hosted by the Grantsburg Hockey Association. The event is held Friday, Saturday and Sunday and features the top racers from the United States and Canada, each hoping to capture the World Champion honor and the large cash purse.
The thrill of racing snowmobiles over water has attracted thousands of spectators each year. Spectators and racers alike enjoy panoramic views of Memory Lake. There is plenty of spectator room, plus camping facilities, displays, food and beverage vendors, kids play area, street dances with live music and other activities.
Watercross begins on Friday with IWA racing action starting at noon, rolling into the evening with a street dance. Racing continues on Saturday and Sunday, ending around 5:00 p.m. on Sunday when the champions are determined. On Saturday evening, there will be entertainment on the water before the street dance and take part in the "The Best Fireworks Around." The fireworks spectacular begins at dusk and draws thousands of satisfied viewers.
Whether you are a snowmobile enthusiast or not, Watercross will provide you with a most unusual and enjoyable summer experience. Plan to spend the weekend by camping or staying at our local motel or B&B. Find more lodging options in the county here.
