Catfish Concert- What is a Catfish Concert?

Singing Fish.jpgOur Catfish Concert is the themed name for the second night of our Catfish Extravaganza.  We feature top national acts in an outdoor amphitheater.  Tickets go on sale early April.  We tried to teach the fish to sing, but they couldn't carry a tuna.

Catfish Extravaganza- What is the Catfish Extravaganza?

In 1988, several of our Greenville Lions took a trip to Mississippi to attend their Greenville Lion fundraiser "Catfish Races".  They brought the idea back home to Greenville Wisconsin where it has grown and evolved with our community into the two-day event it is today. Friday night- Catfish Races/ Community Night; Saturday- Catfish Concert featuring top national acts.

Catfish Races- What are Catfish Races?

We place a catfish in each of our eight long glass fish tanks.  When the race announcer counts down to zero, catfish swim from one end of their tank to the other.  The catfish that swims from start to finish first is the winner!  Local businesses, Lions and Lioness members can sponsor a catfish.  We run heats, quarterfinals, semifinals and then declare a champion catfish and sponsor.  It's fun for the whole family guessing which catfish will "WIN IT ALL"!

Chairs- Are Chairs allowed to be carried in?

Yes!  Folding chairs without a canopy will be allowed, but will be restricted to a designated area. Pre-placement is prohibited. Chairs will not be allowed in the area in front of the stage.  Blankets are allowed.  We ask that you respect others' concert experience by arranging your chairs to minimize viewing obstruction.
