Today was to be the first day of the 2020 Wisconsin State Fair. One family is planning a reunion to remember their husband and Dad who loved the Fair so much. "We will all be together at my cabin and over the next couple of days we will be enjoying the events & things that we normally do at the fair... As I write this my daughter is picking up cream puffs right there at the fair park!" We love this! If you would like to honor someone's legacy, you can order a brick or bench for the 2021 Fair. https://wsfpfoundation.org/giving/

Five Wisconsin artists came to the Fair Park on Saturday, July 25 to take part in a mini Plein Air at the Fair painting event. These talented artists captured the spirit of the 2020 Fair Food Drive Thru and created masterpieces that are sure to become collector’s items in a year with no Fair. All artwork is now available for sale with 35 percent of the proceeds donated to the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation and 65 percent going directly to support the local artist. www.biddingforgood.com/wsfpfoundation/wsfpfoundation-2

Today, we share your disappointment that the 2020 Wisconsin State Fair can’t go on as planned but know the decision is deeply rooted in what’s best for all.

Since 1995, it’s been the mission of the Foundation to provide year-round support to the Wisconsin State Fair and now our work is more meaningful than ever.

Thank you for your continued support and for sharing your love of the Wisconsin State Fair in a year when we can’t be together. https://wsfpfoundation.org/

We look forward to celebrating with you in 2021.

The Wisconsin State Fair is so much more than just a fair, it is tradition, it is celebration, it is the showcase of everything we are so proud of in Wisconsin. This is why our hearts are heavy as we bring you this news. For the safety of our fairgoers, staff, vendors, entertainers, exhibitors, sponsors, suppliers and the broader community, the 2020 Wisconsin State Fair has been canceled.

For months we have continued to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, including local, state and federal health agencies’ recommendations on preventing the spread of this disease. Several agencies continue to offer strict guidelines advising against mass gatherings, and as the largest event in the State of Wisconsin this guidance weighed heavily in this decision.

We understand the magnitude of disappointment you may be feeling. We feel it too. However, under these guidelines we could not create the welcoming, safe, educational and enjoyable experience that you have come to know and love. Safety is our number one priority, and we cannot compromise this under any circumstances, including the ones we are living with today.

We thank you for your unwavering support and will look forward to celebrating the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair, presented by U.S. Cellular, August 5 – 15.

Wisconsin State Fair
05/05/2020

Wisconsin State Fair

During these unprecedented times we want to provide you with an update on the status of the 2020 Wisconsin State Fair and say THANK YOU. We hear every word of support and encouragement you have sent, and this fuels us to keep working to ensure the Wisconsin State Fair continues its 169-year legacy while keeping safety our top priority.

The Wisconsin State Fair is a celebration of everything we are so proud of in Wisconsin, and our priority is to create a place where everyone feels welcome and safe. With this in mind, the State Fair Park Board of Directors and staff continue to discuss options that will enable us to provide this experience in 2020.

There are many factors to be considered. Several large industries, including agriculture, entertainment, concessions and ride operations, as well as hundreds of small businesses and thousands of part-time employees, are paramount to putting on a successful Fair.

We are analyzing all facets of the Fair, while continuing to closely monitor data from local, state and federal health officials, and assess how this will affect each one.

At this time the State Fair Park Board of Directors has not made a formal decision on whether the Wisconsin State Fair will go on as planned, August 6 – 16. However, until a decision is made, we will continue to work tirelessly to make the Wisconsin State Fair the WonderFair experience you know and love.

Stay tuned for additional updates. Your continued support means the world to us!
