1. Bratfest is held every year on Memorial Day Weekend Friday - Monday on Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center. It moved to Willow Island a few years ago after being held in the Sentry Foods parking lot when it first began. In 2008 the fest set a world record for the most brats consumed in a weekend. Each year they try to break their own world record by selling more and more brats. In addition to Brats, Bratfest also offers hotdogs and Boca Brats (vegetarian) for very reasonable prices. Free live entertainment is available on two stages as well as carnival rides and sweet treats. Rutabega also offers kayaking for kids.
