OPENING FOR THE 2017 WISCONSIN STATE FAIR
with help from you and those interested in fostering Wisconsin's Dairy Industry


The Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation has initiated a $1.4 million dollar capital campaign to fund the creation of a Dairy Education Center.  This project will further educate visitors to the Wisconsin State Fair of Wisconsin's #1 industry by promoting the healthy alternatives that dairy products offer in family's daily diet, advocating for the endless career opportunities that exist in the creation and distribution of dairy commodities as well as highlighting the heritage and economic impact that the dairy industry has had on the State of Wisconsin.
