The Running of the Sturgeon will take a new form in 2022 where your whole family can follow the elusive sturgeon to any of our participating locations.  If you spot the sturgeon and can “spear him”, ask him for a drink and he cannot refuse.  There will be activities and hot cocoa for kids at each location.  Find the sturgeon at any of the locations listed below between 5:30pm and 7:30pm for your free drink*.  Don’t miss the official lighting of the sturgeon at 7pm in front of Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts.  One lucky winner will be able to illuminate the sturgeon and sculptures to officially start the weekend.

Participating Times: 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Participating Locations (see below): 

  1. Brickhouse (5:30 – 6:15 PM) – 161 S. Main Street, Fond du Lac

Masks are recommended for people ages two and older.
