WISCONSIN — Things have been looking grim for us Wisconsinites. We have seen postponements or cancellations of many of the states biggest events and festivals including the Wisconsin State Fair and Summerfest.

It's getting hard to keep track of what has been canceled, what events are still happening, and when. We have compiled a list of all the events still happening in southeastern Wisconsin this summer and early fall.

Some of these events have been postponed, but still fall within the year so they have been included in our list. Events postponed until next year, though, are not included.

Bastille Days
Bastille Days has been postponed until fall; however, exact dates have not been announced. The event was originally supposed to take place July 9 through July 12.

Country in the Burg
Cedarburg's country festival, Country in the Burg, is scheduled to go on as planned Aug. 29. Country in the Burg posted an updated Wednesday saying, "At this time, Country in the Burg is going to be a go." However, they said a final determination will be made on July 29.

Country Thunder
Country Thunder, which is scheduled to take place in Twin Lakes this July, is yet to make a definitive decision. The festival shared an update on Facebook Monday explaining that they will have updates as soon as possible.

Democratic National Convention
The Democratic National Convention (DNC) has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, however the new dates aren't too far away. The event will now take place Aug. 17 through Aug. 20. However, it is unclear how the event will be held with current conditions. There will likely be limitations placed on the event, or it will simply go virtual.

Ryder Cup
The 2020 Ryder Cup is still scheduled for its original dates of Sept, 22 through Sept. 20 at Whistling Straights in Kohler. Tickets for the event can be difficult to find now that the random selection process has ended. However, the PGA of America has an official ticket exchange provider that still has packages available.

The event is scheduled for September 3-5, 10-12, 17-19. However, many of the headliners are still setting up new dates, some of which are next summer.
