Dairyfest 2017. . . Makin’ It Happen!posted on April 13, 2017
Wisconsin’s dairy farmers “make it happen” every day by bringing the farm to our tables. The greater Marshfield area honors the dairy industry at its annual community festival, Dairyfest.
Dairyfest kicks off Friday, June 2nd, with the Mayor’s Breakfast being served to over 2,100 people. The menu consists of scrambled egg omelets; filled with cheese, hash browns, ham, mushrooms, onions, and real butter, and is complimented with squeaky fresh cheese curds, cheese slices, assorted muffins, strawberry sundaes, fresh fruit, piping hot coffee, and ice cold white and chocolate milk. As attendees enter the breakfast hall they are welcomed with lively, festive music. Every attendee takes home a souvenir ceramic coffee mug.
Later that day, an old fashioned Picnic in the Park is offered 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, children’s games, petting zoo, the civic band concert, and an outdoor movie in the park complete the evening.
Saturday’s activities are jam packed with a Cheese Chase (2K run/walk, 5K and 10K runs), an arts/crafts show selling Midwest’s finest treasures, a kids parade just prior to the gigantic parade, mesmerizing magic show, inflatable fun for kids of all ages, and food booths galore to tempt everyone’s taste buds.
Completing the weekend activities are a co-ed softball tournament, and state corn-hole tournament.
