Welcome to the Fitchburg Days 2013 website!
We've concluded another Fitchburg Days. Good food, great bands and lots of fun were enjoyed by all. A huge thanks goes out to all the amazing volunteers selling wristbands, beer tickets, soft drinks, pouring beer and driving the golf cart. We couldn't possibly have Fitchburg Days without these important people. A big thanks also goes out to the organizers of Fitchburg Days: Steve Streck, Jay Allen, Ryan Coleman, Dave Heide, Dana Murn, Anne Zickus, and Terri Regner.
