Fondue Fest Schedule Coming Soon
Enjoy a celebration that includes music & activities for all ages.
Cheese and chocolate fondue is prepared by the Moraine Park Technical College Culinary Arts program. The Culinary Arts program offers students many opportunities to enter and advance in the hospitality industry. Students receive hands-on, practical experience in all aspects of food preparation and production.
Every year, between 70-90 pounds of cheese is melted into a delicious fondue recipe which also features several other ingredients like apple cider. Over 200 loaves of Artisan bread are baked by Tom Endejan and 3,000 portions of cheese and chocolate fondue are sold in one day!
Three Stages of Live Music
North Stage - TBA
South Stage - TBA
The THELMA Fondue Fest Finale - TBA
Volunteers are needed to help out at the festival. We are looking for help in areas such as:
“Floater” – (Shifts available all day) walk around the festival and note areas that need to be addressed. i.e. Vendor is aggressive, trash is too full, litter in street, etc. Floaters will also probably receive random questions from attendees, so good to be an extrovert!
“Barricade mover” – (Shift from 4:30-6:30) move barricades aside for vendors as they exit and then return them to their position to avoid any public vehicles accessing the festival area before the vendors are torn down.
“Information Booth” – (Afternoon shift available) Provide information at the Information Booth, check IDs and give wristbands, give relief to the one staff person that sits there ALL day :)
“Candid Photographer” – (lowest priority and can be done with any other jobs) take pictures and post them to social media using event hastags #fonduefest and #downtownfdl
