It’s Hot, Hot, Hot! It’s the North Hudson annual Pepper Fest. This three-day celebration honors the Italian heritage with emphasis on Italian food and has become the favorite event of the community.

Pepper Fest invites you to three relaxing summer days filled with award winning Italian Food, Beer, a Carnival, a Parade and other events. Live music each evening will enhance the scene. Join us on Sunday for the Grand finale of the Coronation followed by the music by the Pepper Fest band favorite, The Dweebs.

Funds raised from Pepper Fest have helped build the elementary school in North Hudson and renovated the school playgrounds, expanding into one of the largest fund raisers for our local community, schools, youth, and service organizations. Proceeds from previous Pepper Fest celebrations have supported the Boy Scouts, Youth Action Hudson, North Hudson Park Board, SART, SAFE, Youth Court, North Hudson PTO, St. Croix EMS, North Hudson Police Department and Hudson Area Seniors.

Please consider sponsoring or continuing to sponsor our event so we can continue to give back to the community. Please click on the link below to download the Sponsorship Form:
