A fun and free event for the entire family!

The Fishtival:
You don’t have to fish to enjoy the Fishtival! Bring the entire family, and while your angler casts around City Park, you can catch a good time at the Fishtival. There will be a DJ playing music, special activities for children, great raffles, a host of educational exhibitors, and new and used fishing gear for sale at great prices! The Fishtival highlights many of the state’s fishing resources with interactive demonstrations and information.

When: Saturday, March 28, 2020, from 8 am until noon

Where: Near Popp Bandstand and the Casino Building
