Letter from the Executive Director

"Welcome to the 118th Central Wisconsin State Fair!

In 2020, we live in a fast-paced ever-changing world. The central Wisconsin State fair is proud to say that we have been able to endure and hang around for 118 years. Anyway you look at it, 118 years is a long time.

In the beginning most of us either lived on a farm or worked in an industry that supported agriculture. Today most of us are several generations removed from the farm and we are finding ourselves in a position where we have to educate the consumers as to where our food comes from. Take time this week to talk to our producers and find out what it takes to produce that cheese curd or ice cream cone you are enjoying. Ask how much time and effort it took to raise that steer or that prize-winning head of cabbage. As you are visiting with our producers, take the time to thank them for their efforts to keep our store shelves stocked and our bellies full. These are challenging times for American agriculture, but with their creativity and willpower they will endure. 118 years ago they were the foundation of our Fair and they remain our backbone today.

We are very excited to be working again this year with North American Midway Entertainment. They received great reviews the last two years and are promising a few surprises to keep things exciting.

Also returning this year is Watershow Productions - High Dive Act. Thanks again to all the fine folks at Nasonville Dairy for helping provide the shows each year.

This year’s entertainment lineup, in either the grandstand or the family entertainment tent, is loaded with outstanding talent.

Thank you for visiting us and enjoy the Fair!”
