Fish Day marks 50th year with five music stages

July 19, 2014, Saturday, marks the 50th Annual Fish Day Event in picturesque Port Washington. Fish Day is the largest one day, outdoor fish fry and music festival in the world.

Headlining the Main Stage this year will be recording artist Josh Thompson. Born in Cedarburg, WI, Josh moved to Nashville, TN, in 2005 to pursue his dream of becoming a singer/song writer. “It’s just really all-encompassing,” Thompson says of the Turn It Up banner. “Not only turn up this record, but turn up the way you live your life, turn up the crazy, turn up the feel-good, turn up the don’t-give-a-you-know-what.”

Thompson and his road-warrior band really kick it into high gear on the road, which is why the FISH DAY committee selected them to help celebrate its 50th anniversary!

Music and other entertainment is featured throughout the day on 5 stages.

The 50th annual Fish Day is also host to numerous other fun activities for the entire family including an 8K run and 2 mile Fun Run/Walk beginning at 8:00am. Then watch the gigantic parade through downtown Port Washington commencing at 10:00am.

The Festival Grounds with carnival rides for all ages opens at 10:00am as does the Classic Car Show, Arts & Crafts Show and Helicopter rides on the beautiful Upper Lake Park. Other fun activities during the day include soccer water fights, ice cream eating contests and a smoked fish eating contest.

There are nine civic, veteran, fraternal, and service volunteer organizations that operate the food and beverage stands throughout the entire area and serve up the best fish and chips this side of the Atlantic. They also serve Chicken Strips, Cheese Curds and craft beers!

Best of all, it’s FREE admission to the grounds with the only exception being the main stage which requires a collectible fish day admission button for $2.00 in advance or $5.00 at the gate. Free shuttle buses means easy parking throughout the city. The day ends with a spectacular fireworks display over the harbor starting at 9:30pm.
