North Hudson Pepper Festival
The North Hudson Pepper Fest is a three-day celebration of theWisconsin’s community’s Italian heritage. The event includes homemade Italian food, a beer garden, contests, rides, a parade, royalty and everything else that a community celebration requires.
A 2021 Pepper Fest button is required for entry for those ages 12 and older. Buttons are $5 at the gate or $4 if purchased prior to the Festival.
The Hudson Area Chamber of Commerce says of the event, “Pepper Fest is all about giving back to the community while also creating a memorable and fun three-day event. Proceeds from the volunteer-run, non-profit festival are donated to local youth, school, community and service organizations each year. On average, over $20,000 is given back to the community each year.”
The festival runs from Friday, Aug. 20, through Sunday, Aug. 22. Events will be located behind North Hudson Village Fall. For more information, visit pepperfest.org.
