We regret to inform everyone that the Trempealeau Lions Club has cancelled this years Catfish Days. This was not an easy decision, but given the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and our concerns for health and safety, we believe our decision is the right one. The Lions thank everyone who has supported Catfish Days, and we’ll bring this great festival back next year!
