Welcome to the City of Brillion

Nestled between Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago in Calumet County, the City of Brillion is a great place to live, work, learn, and play. Being centrally located 25 miles from Appleton, Green Bay, and Manitowoc, makes Brillion a great location for quaint living and a short commute.


Due to the number of jobs lost through the Brillion Iron Works closing the City asked the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board for some information that we might make available to the community.  Please click on "Resume Document" to download the information provided.  We would also encourage you to take advantage of the services provided through the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board and their workforce partners.


The Brillion Downtown Farmers Market will continue to be held in the HUB parking lot and sponsored by the City of Brillion RDA.  There is no charge to set up and sale your produce, bake goods, or crafts.  No spots are assigned but it is on a first-come basis, but there is plenty of room for all interested in selling at the Brillion Downtown Farmers Market.  There is consideration of closing off Jackson Street during the weekly event in order to provide more space for events.  The Market will be every Saturday morning and open to all beginning in June through October. 

If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl Welch, Community Development Director/RDA Coordinator at 920-756-2250 or comdev@ci.brillion.wi.us
