41st-Annual Walleye Weekend Begins Today


The 41st-annual Walleye Weekend is upon us, as for the next three days people from all around will head to Lakeside Park for music, food and fun. The park opens for the family festival at three o’clock this afternoon, and if it’s music you seek, you can’t go wrong with the lineup at Walleye Weekend according to Co-Chair Molly Jaster. “Every single band there is free,” Jaster said. “Four stages, 25 bands, we’re bringing in Pop Evil as the headliner on Friday night, and we’re bringing back tons of local and regional bands – Boogie & the Yo Yoz, The Love Monkeys, Star Six-Nine, D-Willy and the Souvenirs – so there’s really something for everyone.” Bands begin playing as early as 5:30 tonight, with music continuing all three days. The headliner, Pop Evil, takes the stage at 8:30 tonight.

It’s not just the music at Walleye Weekend – as tournaments, including the Mercury Marine National Walleye Fishing Tournament, a 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, Bean Bag Tournament, Walleyball Softball Tournament and much more will be held throughout the weekend. The food is also a highlight, as local non-profits including Fond du Lac Firefighters Local 400, local Kiwanis Clubs, the Knights of Columbus and more offer great food – with a portion of proceeds going right back to the groups themselves. Last year, over $267-thousand was raised for the non-profit partners of Walleye Weekend.
