The area’s two Fairests of the Fair are at a standstill as they wait for schools to open and a ban on mass gatherings to be lifted. Door County Fairest of the Fair Katie Guilette and Kewaunee County Fairest of the Fair Kiley Pagel are tasked with visiting local events and talking to people promoting their area’s signature events. During the final months of her reign, Guilette was planning on visiting Door County schools to encourage students to enter some of their class assignments and other projects into the Junior Fair. Pagel hardly had a chance to get her term going, appearing at Winter Park and the Bruemmer Park Zoo’s ZoupArt before Kewaunee County events began being shut down and postponed. While she does have schoolwork to keep her occupied, Pagel is anxious to restart her Fairest duties.
The Fairests’ signature events are still scheduled to take place as of right now with the Kewaunee County Fair happening July 9th through the 12th and the Door County Fair occurring July 29th through August 2nd.
