Countdown to State Fair

Sullivan, Wisconsin State Fair, cream puffs, Hunger Task Force, Salute to Wisconsin Scouts Day, Goodwill Two-For-One Tuesday, Military and Veteran???s Day Discount

The Wisconsin State Fair starts this week and runs through August 15. As the fair enters its 159th year, we’ll have visitors from all over the country who will get to experience our wonderful community and those incredible cream puffs for the first time.

For you repeat visitors, organizers tell me they’re doing everything they can to make State Fair the most affordable entertainment experience for families again this summer. Below is a list of admission promotions they shared with me:

Hunger Task Force $2 Day

Just present at least two nonperishable food items or make a cash donation between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the designated locations outside the Fair admission gates to receive a voucher redeemable at the ticket window for $2 admission on Thursday, August 5. Food items and donations benefit the Hunger Task Force. Promotion ends promptly at 5 p.m.
