Green Lake County fairgoers can “Travel the World at the Fair” in 2019. Get ready for a holiday close to home with sights and sounds from around the world, August 1 through 4. Free admission and parking!

The 2019 Green Lake County Fair will hold fun events based on the travel the world theme. The Fair offers something for everyone, from educational programming and musicians to agriculture education and fascinating exhibits by county youth and adults. And don’t forget the livestock judging leading up to the Livestock Auction on Friday, August 2. Food vendors will provide visitors with great experiences at affordable prices, and excitement awaits on the midway with more food and carnival rides. The Fair will host truck/tractor pulls and a Demolition Derby. An admission fee applies to track events.

Just a few of the events planned for 2019 include science shows; free face painting; meet-and-greet-style animal/reptile shows; free balloon animals; and comedian/hypnotist and U.S. Army veteran Kellen Marson will be taking the stage for two shows on Saturday, August 3. Also planning a visit are the Agri-Puppets, a fun family puppet show that teaches the importance of farming, animals, and agriculture. The Agri-Puppets will be taking to the Big Farm Show Stage three times each day along with Boomer, who will be driving his farm delivery truck all over the fairgrounds talking to fairgoers.

The Fair is a showcase for the county’s youth and adults who plan all year for their entries. The youth work on projects to expand their skills and knowledge and share what they’ve learned with fairgoers through conversation and exhibits. The Fair is overseen by the county’s University of Wisconsin Extension office and the Green Lake County Agriculture, Extension Education, and Fair Board with the assistance of many volunteers. Support for the Fair is shown through the Friends of the Fair Partnership Program, which includes area service organizations, individuals, and businesses.
