Door County Fair makes a move

Get out your 2022 calendars and erasers because the Door County Fair is changing weekends. The Door County Fair Board announced this week that its annual event will be moved to the second weekend of August beginning next year due to its contract with the carnival operating on the midway. With a limited number of carnival operators in the state, county fairs and other civic celebrations often have to change dates to keep them coming. Door County Fair Board President Tom Ash says the date change is a reflection on when the fair used to be held years ago and could potentially be a big help for exhibitors in the future.

Work securing music and other entertainment are already underway for the 2022 Door County Fair, which will be held August 10th-14th. Ash estimates that over 20,000 people attended this year’s 150th Door County Fair. He was not sure if it was a record, but adds that even with the rain it rivaled crowds not seen since the 1970s and 1980s. He encourages this year’s fairgoers to contact them with feedback so they know what went right and what can be improved.
