The Chippewa Falls Museum of Industry and Technology was an idea that sprang from local citizens who wanted to record and preserve the history of important, unique and ground breaking innovations in industry and technology that were developed right here in the Chippewa Valley. It opened in May 1998 and now has a variety of exhibits that include the Seymour Cray Supercomputer Collection, Leinenkugel’s, Mason Companies Inc., and other area historic exhibits.

The Chippewa Valley Blues Society is continuing to grow. As a Society we want to do more to support the Blues in our region. Along with more shows & more community events, we want to encourage local Venues to bring national & regional Artists into our area to compliment our great local Blues performers. By showing a strong membership of Blues supporters we can succeed. Your membership helps keep the Blues strong & alive in the Chippewa Valley and lets the music venues know we are here and will support the music.

The Chippewa Valley Book Festival, which began in 2000, has evolved into a dynamic week-long event offering a variety of programs promoting reading and writing.

Volunteer committee members come from area communities, the Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire Area School Districts, Indianhead Federated Library System, L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library, and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
