Walleye Weekend has been cancelled for 2020.  Due to the current social landscape and the impact of COVID-19, Fond du Lac Festivals (FFI) has decided to cancel Walleye Weekend Reunited that had been rescheduled for August 28, 29, and 30, 2020.

 

After careful consideration, the FFI Board of Directors have made the decision not to move forward with this large-scale event this year.  However, virtual activities and an alternate family event is currently being organized for August that takes into consideration additional guidance from public health officials.

 

Public health and safety will continue to be a priority, and with support from our generous sponsors, we’re excited to continue our mission through safe and appropriate ways.


FFI’s mission is to support local and regional non-profit organizations through the creation of safe, fun and affordable family-friendly events for Fond du Lac and the surrounding communities.

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 an average of 70,000 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 of the community, local businesses and nonprofit organizations.  Net profits provided to participating organizations since 2012 total over $2,000,000.  Each year over 1,600 volunteers provide more than 13,000 volunteer hours from 54 groups representing 45 organizations to make Walleye Weekend happen!
