Welcome to
the Kewaskum Statesman, Kewaskum's hometown newspaper!


Every week the Kewaskum Statesman brings you news about the people you care for. Hitting the newsstand Wednesday and delivered to your doorstep Thursday, the Kewaskum Statesman offers complete coverage of local events.

Kewaskum School District Receives Safety Grant

The Kewaskum School District received a $106,347 grant through the Wisconsin Department of Justice School Safety Grant program.
The funds will be used to upgrade the security at all five of the Kewaskum school buildings, including installing shatter-resistant film at each of the school entrances and creating a more secure front entry for the high school.
“School safety is our first priority. Learning cannot effectively happen if students, parents, and staff do not feel that they are working in a safe environment,” Kewaskum Schools Superintendent James Smasal said. “Because we are a community school district, these security enhancements will benefit not only students, but the entire community as well.”

Party On The Pavement To Be Held This Tuesday

Party on the Pavement, known as the largest street festival held on a Tuesday in the state, will be held in downtown Kewaskum on Tuesday, June 26.
The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and is sponsored by the Kewaskum Area Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds benefit the community.
The day features an array of vendors, crafts, a bouncy house, face painting, balloon art and live entertainment. Plenty of food and refreshments will be available throughout the day. All food items will be $5 or less.

News Offices To Be Closed On June 28 And 29

The Kewaskum Statesman and Campbellsport News offices will be closed on Thursday, June 28, and Friday, June 29.
Employees will be working, but no business will be able to be conducted because of computer software upgrades that will be taking place. We will not be able to access the advertising program during this time frame, so we will not be able to take any new ads or answer any billing questions.
If you need to talk with someone about news-related items or subscription questions, we will be able to help you with this.
Because of this upgrade, our deadline for the July 5 newspaper will be Wednesday, June 27, at noon. Thank you for your patience!
