Berry Fest 2021

Our Berry Fest is a summer tradition begun in 1950. Today it’s an important part of Platteville’s Hometown Festival Week.

You’ll find loads of free fun, great food, healthy activities, awesome music… and … a surprisingly competitive and uproariously entertaining foot race of local mascots!
