About The Event
Join Pier Pups for the 44th Annual Walleye Weekend Free Family Festival in Fond du Lac at the 400 acre Lakeside Park. This family festival offers live music on several stages, a National Walleye Fishing Tournament, numerous athletic tournaments and concessions including lots of walleye.
Lakeside Park offers plenty of shaded grassy areas to set up your canopies. A few weeks before the event, we will email you a VIP parking pass for NADD competitors via the NADD Portal. Due to recent events, vehicle traffic will no longer be allowed to enter the park. A NEW parking area, located approximately a block from the pool, will be open to competitors with a VIP parking pass. This lot is very close to the pool and you can pretty easily crate out of your car if you wish. Of course, you are welcome to set up crates and canopies in the shady area adjacent to the pool as well. Directions will be emailed to you via the NADD portal, so be sure to update your email address.

Waivers - NEW digital waivers!
Please click HERE to digitally sign the event waivers or click HERE to print off, sign and bring with both waivers: 1) the standard NADD waiver 2) the Pier Pups waiver. We will issue you a wristband that will allow you on the dock once we have received both waivers. Also, any additional handlers must also complete these waivers and have a wristband to enter the dock area.
We will be running the event as a regular closed splash event with set splash times. There will be only 3 teams in the staging area at a time: the team on the dock, one on deck, and one in the hole. We will also use the sound system and a white board to keep everyone up to date on the running order.
Ribbon labels will be placed on a table on the far side of the admin tent immediately following the splash.
Try-its will be allowed as space permits and during splashes if no competitors are waiting to jump. Try-its cost $10.00 for two Try-it tickets. These tickets may be used on any day of the competition.
