The Door County Fair hopes a statewide trend occurring this summer means they will see you soon this weekend. County fair attendances across Wisconsin are surging after a year where many of them were canceled. The Northern Wisconsin State Fair broke the 100,000 mark for the first time according to the Leader-Telegram in Chippewa Falls. The Waukesha County Fair said in a recent news release that it had its highest attendance in 2005. Thad Ash from the Door County Fair Board says that is a common thread he has heard from other fairs including Kewaunee County. He is hopeful that trend continues as the Door County Fair heads into the weekend with its biggest musical acts on the horizon.
The Door County Fair runs through Sunday with some new events starting on the midway on Friday in addition to a double bill of music on Friday and Saturday and more livestock judging. You can find the full schedule for the Door County Fair by clicking this link.
