Wisconsin State Fair plans to return this August

After a year off last year amid the pandemic, Wisconsin State Fair announced today that plans to return this summer, confirming a Aug. 5-15 run at State Fair Park. 

“In January, the Wisconsin State Fair Park Board approved a goal to have a fair this August and we are pleased to confirm we are well on our way to meeting that goal,” said Wisconsin State Fair Park's board chairman John Yingling wrote in a release.
