Welcome to Crivitz!

Thank you for visiting the website for the Village of Crivitz, Wisconsin, the “Gateway to the North”, including the beautiful Peshtigo River, Peshtigo River State Forest, Lake Noquebay and soon to be Tommy Thompson Centennial Park.

Located in south-central Marinette County, a short 55 miles north of Green Bay, Crivitz is the hub of the area tourism industry. In Crivitz you will find all of the services essential to making your visit extra special. From sport shops to gift and craft shops, to gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants, when you visit the area you will find our businesses eager to serve you and your needs.

Crivitz was founded in 1883 by a forward thinking businessman named Fredrick J. Bartels and named after his hometown of Crivitz Germany. Our businesses and citizens maintain that same sense of vision and forward thinking today. New business is welcomed and encouraged by the Village Board of Trustees and the Crivitz Business and Recreation Associations. We remain in close contact with our “sister city” in Germany through the Sister City organization. In Crivitz we believe in remembering our heritage while keeping an eye on the future.

Culture and education in Crivitz is centered in our great school system, long recognized for its excellent educational opportunities. The pride of Crivitz is our high school band, which has performed across the country and at events in Canada, winning friends and awards as it travels. The administrative staff is committed to a quality education for our youth. Northeastern Wisconsin Technical College maintains a regional training center for adult education in the community. The history of Crivitz is being maintained at the Crivitz-Stephenson Historical Society Museum located near the High School. The Crivitz area library located downtown has books and programs for all ages.

While we fervently hope you never need the services of our Police, Fire or Rescue Squad, it is reassuring to know that they are here to serve you if you need them. These dedicated volunteers train continuously to better serve those in need.

Crivitz Wisconsin is a great place to live, work and play. We hope to see you soon!
