Who we are

Our Mission

The Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation, established in 1995, is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation. We are committed to providing a superior experience for Wisconsin State Fair Park visitors through public and private partnerships; year-round art and education programs; and the continual enhancements and environmental sustainability of Wisconsin State Fair Park.    

Our donors know that the State Fair is where families create traditions and memories that last a lifetime.  It is a place where urban meets rural and thousands of visitors learn something new. It is a place to celebrate the agricultural bounty of Wisconsin and try something new on a stick. This the magic of the State Fair – past, present and future.
