Even if there are questions about whether or not the events will move forward because of the COVID-19 outbreak, fair families like the Wilkes say they are preparing for the best. The pandemic has forced the postponement and cancellation of many events this spring, some of which taking place as late as June and early July. That gets close for people planning on purchasing and working with their animal projects for local county fairs and the Wisconsin State Fair. Kevin Wilke from Wilke R Organic Farm in Sturgeon Bay says his daughters are expecting the arrival of their turkeys and sheep for this year’s Door County Fair. Until there is word there is not going to be a fair, Wilke knows his girls will prepare like there will be one.
The Wilke family shows several different animal projects during the Door County Fair, which is scheduled to take place July 29th through August 2nd.
