You don't have to speak French to enjoy the fun at McPike Park this weekend.

It's time once again for La Fete De Marquette--one of the great summer festivals held on the isthmus each summer. It's a celebration of Bastille Day, with plenty of live music, food, frolic (plenty of frolic!) and fun for the kids as well. The music has an international flair--some of it coming from bands right here in Madison.

Sunday night's headliner is Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Randolph is an amazing pedal steel guitarist who made Rolling Stone's list of 100 Best Guitarists of All Time.

The event is a fundraiser for the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center. Look for Jonathan Suttin at the Fete, inviting you to spin the wheel for amazing prizes.

Reminder from festival organizers--please leave your pets at home, and carry-in food and beverages are not allowed.
