Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin – While the Rafters are away, the fans will play as Witter Field will host CurdFest on Sunday, August 2 to determine the best deep fried and fresh cheese curds in central Wisconsin.

Additional curds and other food options are available for purchase from the vendors on hand, as well as a limited menu from the Witter Field concessions and beer stands. Fans will have a chance to vote on their favorite curds.

Bro Country will provide live music for the event from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. There will be inflatables and bounce houses for kids, along with ladder golf and beersbee, among other yard games, for the adults in attendance.
