While summer may be coming to a close, the fair season is not. And neither is the opportunity to share your fair story! Maybe you got engaged at a fair, won your first ribbon or went to your first concert. Whatever memory you hold dear, we want to hear it.
The Mid-West Farm Report is teaming up with the Wisconsin Association of Fairs to capture fair memories across generations and across the state. Two winners will be selected: a Grand Champion Winner will get a premium of $500 and a Reserve Grand Champion will get $250.
