Thank you 2024 Legend Sponsors

In 1978 the Mercury Marine National Walleye Tournament was born in Fond du Lac with hopes to build a festival around it. Today, Walleye Weekend lures over 50,000 people to Lakeside Park with its extensive family entertainment, national, regional and local music acts, sporting events and many other attractions. All attractions and entertainment, admission and shuttles for the yearly celebration are completely free to the public. The success of Walleye Weekend can be attributed to the support from the community, local businesses, and nonprofit organizations.

In 2023 alone, Fond du Lac Festivals helped 39 area nonprofits raise over $200,000.  Hundreds of volunteers dedicate themselves to help Walleye Weekend happen each year.  Come support them, and come support our community!

Thank you 2024 Media Partners!

Fond du Lac Festivals would like to thank our partnering nonprofits that help run the the event – from the food stands, the Walleye Run/Walk, the tournaments, the family-friendly activities and everything else to ensure you (and/or your family) have a fun, safe, and comfortable experience at Walleye Weekend.


And thank you for supporting them by participating and patronizing them at Walleye Weekend year after year!
