Hoppe reflects on the fair

After serving as a fourth generation Kewaunee County Fair Board member, Al Hoppe is stepping aside. The former secretary of the Kewaunee County Fair Board held one of the five positions that will need to be filled before the first exhibits are brought to the fairgrounds in Luxemburg this July. Hoppe was tasked with helping book the entertainment over the years including country music acts that would later make it big. Some years were better than others financially for the Kewaunee County Fair, but Hoppe says his proudest moment serving on the board was being able to do so while his father was still alive.


With a couple business ventures still in town, Hoppe is not going anywhere as he will help the transition of the new fair board as they get ready for this year’s event beginning July 11th. As for a fifth-generation Hoppe following in his footsteps, he says only time will tell.
