The Fair Association would like to thank the many volunteers and organizations that helped to make the fair a success. It’s hard to list everyone but we appreciate all that you do!
A new open class exhibit building, shuttle service and donate a bench are just a few of the new programs introduced this year. Next year the Association hopes to start hosting company picnics and volunteer recognition parties at the Fair. A designated tent can be reserved to host your party at the Fair! The largest selection of food, family entertainment and exhibits awaits your group in 2014.
See you August 13 thru 17, 2014 at the Dodge County Fair !!!
