Each year in early August, over the course of 11 fun-filled days, nearly a million people visit the Wisconsin State Fair. Livestock, home economics, and horticulture judging are high on the list of favorite fair activities. The Wisconsin State Fair hosts approximately 22,000 entries, awards more than $400,000 in premiums, and distributes more than 30,000 ribbons to the Midwest’s finest dairy and beef cattle, draft horses, goats, sheep, swine, llamas, rabbits, and poultry. Not to mention cakes, cookies, pies, canned goods, quilts, needlepoint, woven items, floral arrangements, and, of course, dairy products.
Before and after the fair, the grounds bustle with rodeos, antique shows, concerts, gun shows, craft shows, auctions, and other festivals such Cajunfest and West Allis Western Days. One of the reasons the grounds are so popular is the new 200,000 square-foot exposition center, where many of the activities are located.
