It’s not quite as exciting as Tom Cruise shouting “BAR IS OPEN!” in the movie “Cocktail,” but we’re pretty psyched.
That’s because “Registration is open!” for this year’s Festival Foods Turkey Trot, an annual Thanksgiving Day tradition for many communities across Wisconsin.
The 2015 Festival Foods Turkey Trot will be held at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 26. Two distances are offered at the …
We’re excited to tell you Festival Foods has big plans for 2016, including opening two new stores next summer.
We are looking to build new stores in Somers as well as Menasha.
In Somers, which is just north of Kenosha in southeastern Wisconsin, we intend to purchase a vacant parcel of land located off of 31st Street, pending permit approval. Construction of the state-of-the-art …
We’re thrilled to tell you that Festival Foods is investigating the possibility of constructing a new store on Green Bay’s northeast side.
The potential store, which would be our 23rd location in Wisconsin and fifth in the Greater Green Bay area, would be located near the intersection of Highway 57 and University Avenue. A formal announcement of a new Festival Foods store would follow project approvals by local municipalities.
“The prospect of serving our guests …
The recent run of hot days here in Wisconsin generated some intense thunderstorms and left thousands without power for various lengths of time.
During outages like this, people often think about how they will get their garage door open, keep the kids entertained, or prevent all the food in the refrigerator from spoiling. In a grocery store, we have some of the same concerns when …
We’re thrilled to announce that our company will partner with the Rock Aqua Jays by sponsoring the Fourth of July fireworks show at the Independence Day on the Rock in Janesville.

With the warm weather finally here, plenty of road races are happening across Wisconsin.
Festival Foods is thrilled to be among the sponsors of many of these great events, including the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and the Eau Claire Marathon, which were both held in May. (You definitely know we’re there when you see our Big Cart nearby.)
Our company also is a big supporter of the Bellin Run, which is set for June 13, …
In April, we told you that we’re heading to Janesville and now here we are, digging right in.
That’s right, we recently hosted an official groundbreaking ceremony at our future home to get things rolling at 2233 Humes Road, which was previously home to a Kmart. We’re demolishing that structure and building a new store that will open in the fall.
Whew! The holidays are behind us and things have settled down a bit so I thought I’d throw out another blog posting. Grocery is a lot like any other retail business in that the holidays are some of our busiest days on the calendar. The Festival team always has some fun during the hustle and bustle, while still feeling the pressure to make sure our guests …
Festival Foods was part of the official groundbreaking event for The Galaxie complex in Madison on September 16 where more than 100 people were in attendance to hear from the mayor, alders, DNR representative, and developer on the project. I had the opportunity to share with the crowd a bit about our company’s history and what it means for us to enter the …
Festival is located on the first floor behind the trees.
