My family has been going to the fair for several days every year for the past 8 years. The food and drinks get better and better every year. You can count of your old favorites to be there and there are so many new creations to try that you will not go hungry. the shopping pavilion is a nice retreat from the heat with so many vendors to look at. the entertainment is great. the evenings are the best when the good rock bands come out. We ALWAYS see the Bobby Friss Band. He is a staple every year. We also saw Here Come The Mummies. That was a good funky change of pace. It can get crowded but it is worth it. the crowd is normally friendly and means its a good day to be there.
This was my first Wisconsin State Fair - it was a great day and overall I enjoyed it. The music and bar scene was incredible - can't say enough about the options to sit and listen to great music! on the flip side, the lack of bathrooms and garbage/recycling cans was not good. Trying to throw something out meant you'd walk for a long time before finding a garbage can - I found this odd. Also, the permanent bathrooms are pretty much from the 1970's, which is fine, but they have bathroom attendants inside offering items for a tip. Very odd. It was very hard to find healthy food at this fair - I can't eat many items and I certainly realize this is a fair after all, but vegetarian offerings that weren't deep fried were non existent. Overall a good time though and great people watching!
Much like the Brewers home opener and Summerfest, the State Fair has become a ritual for me. I've been there three times already since it opened and might try to squeak in another trip on Sunday. Love the cream puffs and BBQ roasted corn on the cobb....yummmy!
I was disappointed to hear that the Wisconsin State Fair is continuing with plans to host Sea Lion Splash (SLS) despite receiving information about the exhibitor's history of animal mistreatment and public endangerment. According to a former employee, sea lions traveling with SLS often escaped the presentation area and approached members of the public--an extremely dangerous situation given the animals' razor sharp teeth and potential to carry several diseases that are transmissible to humans. The whistleblower also reported that owners beat the sea lions with poles and pipes during training sessions and didn't provide them with essential salt water, instead confining them to over-chlorinated freshwater tanks that U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors suspect contributed to the painful eye conditions observed in multiple animals. Please recognize that the public does not want to see wild animals exploited for profit. There's nothing educational, safe, or humane about animal abuse, and there's no room for it at your family-friendly event. I encourage you to cancel SLS' appearance immediately. Thank you for your time.
I was accused of masturbating in public by two overzealous police officers, ruined my entire family's trip. I was simply purchasing a hot dog from a man I had met in line, was not sexual at all, yet I was locked in a cell for close to three weeks before even talking to a lawyer, and the worst part is, I only had to give the cop 300 dollars and he let me go. If that's all he wanted why didn't he say so before that? I would have given it to him immediately. What a joke, I'll never go again.
