Waukon Chamber of Commerce to launch its 2024 event series with the Cupid Shuffle this weekend

The Waukon Chamber of Commerce will be launching its 2024 Event Series this weekend, Friday and Saturday, February 16 and 17. This event, aptly called the Cupid Shuffle as it happens near the Valentine’s Day holiday, will highlight Waukon’s local dining establishments and encourages folks to get out and patronize Waukon’s businesses and community amenities.  Cupid Shuffle cards with a list of participating businesses are available at the Chamber office and EpicWear in Waukon, or can be viewed on the Cupid Shuffle Facebook event page.

Those participating in the Cupid Shuffle should visit three different locations in Waukon to grab a drink, have a meal, and take part in an activity. Any participants who “shuffle” to three participating locations and fill out and turn in a Cupid Shuffle card can be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win $100 in Waukon Bucks.

“Waukon has fantastic places to eat and we are excited to show those business owners some love,” shared Mandy Halverson, Waukon Chamber of Commerce Executive Director. “Plus there is a lot to do in Waukon! Over the weekend, you could try pickleball, be part of a trivia team, or catch a comedian. It’s also a great opportunity to check out our newest businesses we have in town.”

The weekend isn’t just for couples. Families are also encouraged to do the Cupid Shuffle and partake in activities like the Critter Meet and Greet at the Driftless Area Education Center, visit the library for some Valentine’s themed books, go bowling, play arcade games and catch a movie, or try axe throwing.

The Cupid Shuffle is the first event of five in the Chamber’s community event series. The events, entitled Together Waukon Works, will include the Spring Fling and Style Show April 26-27, Corn Days and Crazy Days August 2-3, Wine with the Witches October 24-26, and the Holiday Shop Hop December 7.
