Thank you Hub City Times for working with us on this article!

Since March 1, the Central Wisconsin State Fair (CWSF) has introduced major changes to the fair in an effort to reinvigorate its namesake event.

The fair organization’s Executive Director Dale Christiansen recently released new details on upcoming entertainment and the schedule for the new carnival.

“This year’s fair will be kicking off on Tuesday, August 21 with Junior Fair Day,” he said. “We will be offering half price adult gate admittance, with children 12 and under being free on Tuesday. Tuesday’s activities will consist of three high dive acts, day-long events in the free Family Tent, and demonstrations and educational exhibits in the new Wonders of Wisconsin tent. Not to mention the many new food vendors that will be available for your sampling.

“In the grandstand, will be a highly acclaimed a cappella group – Six Appeal. Grandstand seating is free and track-side seating is still available for $5 per person.”

Christiansen said that North American Midway Entertainment will be set up for full view in anticipation of a Grand Opening kick-off on August 22 at noon and will run through the duration of the event.

We would like to personally extend an invitation to come to the Central Wisconsin State Fair and we would like to share a few changes we have had recently with you.

  • NEW DIRECTOR: We have a new Executive Director! Dale joined us in June and worked through last years Fair. This is his first CWSF Fair and he has been hard at work to make the 2018 Fair a great experience for everyone.
  • NEW OFFICE STAFF: Along with the change in management came a change in all new office staff as well. We are all very excited to make this year run smoothly and have fun doing it too!
  • NEW DATES: We are also very excited to announce that we have new Fair dates! This decision has been made per the many requests from our community, which was concerned about kids being in school during the Fair. Our new Fair dates now run from August 21st - 26th, 2018!
  • NEW CARNIVAL: We also have a new carnival! We are introducing North American Midway Entertainment to the 2018 Fair for their first year with us! More information on North American Midway Entertainment (NAME) is available below.

As you can see, we have a lot of new and exciting changes at our Fair for 2018. As you will also see, we did not just stop at the few changes we listed above. We are hoping you are as excited as we are.

You "Can't Miss This" !
