North Hudson Pepper Festival
The Little Village Celebration with a Big Italian Flavor. The three-day celebration honors the community’s Italian heritage and includes a parade, queen coronation, wide variety of food and many contests.
The Pepper Fest began in 1954 as a way to raise funds to build North Hudson Elementary School and has turned into an annual event to assist community organizations throughout the St. Croix Valley. Proceeds from the volunteer-run, non-profit festival are donated to local youth, school, community and service organizations.
