  • We love a good state fair. This is a GREAT state fair. With a 150 year history. Easy to get to, 2 hours drive from Chicago O'Hare, 15 minutes from Milwaukee, or stay at a motel right across from the f...  more »

  • This has been a Wisconsin destination and family tradition for many Wisconsin residents. They have made some changes that I am not fond of regarding concerts. The seating area is all aluminum bleacher...  more »
  • We love the fair! So much fun to be had and yummy food. Love the flavored milk at the Kohls barn, roast corn from the lions club, and giant yellow slide.
  • The Wisconsin State Fair offers hours of family fun. Always adding new/creative food vendors including healthier options. The food-on-a stick craze is still going strong. Make sure to check daily schedule online, if you want to see specific animals; otherwise, you may be disappointed if you go on a change-over day. Unlimited ride wristband is worth the cost, considering my children didn't want to stop after 3 hours! Be prepared to spend $$$ on water/beverages--that's the most expensive part of the fair IMO. The refill cup is a pain to carry around but worth it $wise, if you are going with numerous thirsty kiddos all day. ENJOY! Wait, did I mention cream puffs?! Don't worry, the line goes fast :)
  • It was so sad to see how neglected the DNR area had become. This used to be a jewel of the entire State Fair experience, full of top quality environmental, habitat, lore, and educational materials. In 2017, it was an amateurish wasteland of fluff. Looks like the legislature has gutted the core of Wisconsin.
  • Family tradition and a lot of fun memories are always in store at the State Fairgrounds. Cream Puffs and the Wisconsin Products Pavilion top the list, along with Kids from Wisconsin musical medleys and Lions Club corn on the cob. The infomercial products and the Midway have their time and place too, all very enjoyable.
  • Every state has a fair but this is Wisconsin's State Fair! We know our food, beverages and local culture as well as the best of them. Cheese curds...Never heard of them? It's deep fried cheese. Cream puffs? Our state dessert served cool, creamy and sweet. Deep fryer + imagination = memorable taste experiences. Bring your children because there's enormous activities for them too! Don't forget about the giant Midway games/rides area! Come to our Wisconsin State Fair and see why it draws huge crowds decade after decade! At 40 years old, it never gets redundant.
