Join Pier Pups for the 45th Annual Walleye Weekend Free Family Festival in Fond du Lac at the 400 acre Lakeside Park.  This family festival offers live music on several stages, a National Walleye Fishing Tournament, numerous athletic tournaments and concessions including lots of walleye.
Lakeside Park offers plenty of shaded grassy areas to set up your canopies.  A few weeks before the event, we will email you a VIP parking pass for NADD competitors via the NADD Portal.  Due to recent events, vehicle traffic will no longer be allowed to enter the park.  A NEW parking area, located approximately a block from the pool, will be open to competitors with a VIP parking pass. This lot is very close to the pool and you can pretty easily crate out of your car if you wish.  Of course, you are welcome to set up crates and canopies in the shady area adjacent to the pool as well.  Directions will be emailed to you via the NADD portal, so be sure to update your email address.
