Dairyfest - A 33-year old Community Tradition in Marshfield, Wisconsin, May 30 & 31

Marshfield, Wisconsin (April 28, 2014) - For the past 33 years, Dairyfest in Marshfield, Wisconsin has become a tradition the community looks forward to being a part of.  Presented the weekend after Memorial Day, this year’s festival will take place on May 30 & 31, 513 East 17th Street, Marshfield, WI.

 

Dairyfest kicks off on Friday, May 30th, with the Mayor’s Breakfast being served to over 2,100 people.  The menu consists of a scrambled egg omelet; filled with cheese, ham, mushrooms and onions, and is complimented with squeaky fresh cheese curds, assorted muffins, strawberry sundaes, fresh fruit mix, piping hot coffee, and ice cold white, and chocolate milk.  As attendees enter the breakfast hall they are welcomed with lively, festive music.  Throughout the morning, guests have the opportunity to win door prizes donated by local businesses, and every attendee takes home a ceramic souvenir coffee mug.

 

Later that day, the old fashioned Picnic in the Park is held in Columbia Park.  Pack your own picnic lunch or purchase food from both commercial vendors and non-profit organizations.  Children’s games including a coin/candy hunt, a kid’s fun run, the civic band concert, and an outdoor movie in the park complete the evening.

 

Saturday’s activities are jam packed with a Cheese Chase (1k run/walk, 5k and 10k runs), an arts/crafts show, and kiddie parade just prior to the gigantic parade, lip sync contest, beer garden, carnival rides, and food booths galore to tempt everyone’s taste buds.

 

The event is free. Breakfast: $5, children under 6 are free.
