Festival Foods


Summertime...And the Cookin' is Easy!

From Summer Essentials to Bold & Adventurous Foods...

Nothing says summer like a juicy burger, hot off the grill. But when it's time for a change from burgers and brats, spice up your summer spread. At your next party, try a baked potato bar. Buttery, velvety and juicy, the Towering T-Bone will make your grilling thrilling. Or keep that grill fired up and try a Honey Grilled Watermelon Caprese Salad. Vegetables deserve grill marks, too.


Uncommon Summer Selections

Keep things fresh. Now that summer is in full swing, dare to be different when it comes to your prepping for your next BBQ, figuring out a dish to pass or kicking your weeknight dinner up a notch. Tempt your taste buds with everything from your go-to favorites and summer essentials to bold, daring, adventurous foods.

It's Farmers Market Time at Festival Foods!

We love welcoming local growers, crafters and vendors to our Farmers Markets hosted in front of many of stores throughout the summer! The setup is an amazing way for you to support small producers and then finish your shopping in our aisles. Stop by our Bakery for a loaf of our rustic artisan bread or sponge cake for berries you may have picked up from the market. And don't forget those sweet Hawaiian rolls that go great with BBQ! And you can also swing by our Meat Department for an amazing selection that includes everything from Legendary Beef to Dad's Chicken Breasts to Ribs on a Stick, just to name a few.

Around Wisconsin

Don't miss out on fun-filled summer activities happening all around Wisconsin. Stop by Festival Foods to grab tickets for the Wisconsin State Fair. Get ready to rock at Rock USA.

And follow @TheBigCart on Twitter to catch it as it road trips around America's Dairyland!

It's National Picnic Month

Kick it up a notch with Festival Foods picnic chicken. Or stick to the basics and make packing for a picnic easy — and delicious — with portable and yummy sandwiches.

Stop by the Festival Foods Deli

With sports, get-togethers, sleepovers, and sun - summer is hectic! For those nights when there's just no time to make a homemade meal, stop by the Festival Foods hot bar or try one of our favorite heat and eat dinners.


Rock band Shinedown is coming to Chicago! And Festival Foods is working with radio stations across Wisconsin to help get you there. We're working together on a contest that offers the chance for VIP tickets, a complete pre-show tailgate featuring our Legendary Beef and the chance to meet the band.
