Fondue Fest is in its 14th year and we're ready for another great party full of fondue fun thanks to our sponsor Fox Valley Savings Bank!
With an annual attendance of more than 20,000 people, Fondue Fest comes in as the largest event in downtown. Three stages with all genres of music playing all day, a huge Kids Zone, art and craft vendors, Farmers Market vendors, cheese and chocolate fondue provided by MPTC Culinary students, and more add to the excitement of the day.
Fondue Fest gives the downtown the opportunity to show their endurance, the strength of their friendships, and a chance to celebrate community in the downtown.
Cheese and chocolate fondue is prepared by the Moraine Park Technical College Culinary Arts program will be available at 10:00. 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.
