When you walk through the gates of Wisconsin State Fair, you have countless options to eat and drink around the park. You also have the chance to make your dollar go a little further by supporting the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation.
The foundation’s Executive Director Anna Zeck says there a couple new elements this year for kids and adults in which your support will help invest in fair programs.
The Milk House is ready to bring you traditional and not-so-traditional flavors of cool, refreshing milk. This year, sample a glass of salted caramel, strawberry cheesecake, root beer, or cookies and cream for just $1. Believe it or not, the root beer flavor is a crowd favorite. New this year, you can also purchase the Blue Ribbon Brownie at the Milk House, located on South Grandstand Avenue at Main Street, near the Exposition Center.
Adults ages 21 and up can look forward to a stronger treat. In the Central Park area of the fairgrounds is the new Charity Bar, where fairgoers can enjoy beer and cocktails. Thirty percent of the bar tab goes back into the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation for fairgrounds improvements or educational programming.
Zeck says she hopes to beat last year’s fundraising total of $75,000. They reinvest that money into the park and community programs. Most recently, they brought more than 700 Milwaukee youth to the park for an agricultural learning experience.
