After serving much of their reign virtually in 2020, Kewaunee County Fairest of the Fair Kiley Pagel and Junior Fairest of the Fair Morgan Servaes will continue to serve in their role in 2021. The pair only got to attend a few events earlier this year before the pandemic forced the cancellation of dozens of their appearances. The centerpiece of their summer, the Kewaunee County Fair, was canceled itself in April. Pagel and Servaes have slowly been able to support area events such as ice cream distribution during June Dairy Month and passing out ribbons at the Jim Marck Memorial Hog Show in July. Getting another year to serve as the Fairest of the Fair makes Pagel happy.
The decision follows the path of other Fairest programs in the state that are granting their winners with an additional year. The Wisconsin State Fair announced in July that its 2020 Fairest, Cayley Vande Berg, would serve until the end of 2021.
