    The Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit, uses donor contributions to support agricultural education, arts and environment-related programming tied to the Fair. In 2019, the Foundation funded the creation of Dairy Lane, an interactive exhibit showcasing the importance of the dairy industry in Wisconsin; State Fair Day at Children’s Wisconsin; art and livestock competitions throughout the 11 days of the Fair and so much more.

    I’d like to join the Foundation’s email newsletter list, become a volunteer or share a great idea.
