Sunday at the County Fair
It’s the last day of the Fair, arrive early and make the rounds to see and eat all you can before it closes! If you attended previous days of the Fair bring someone new and give them a tour. Events start bright and early with the Pernat Haase Meats Four Wheel Drive Truck Pull at 9am in front of the grandstands. Local and district pullers from the Badger State Truck Pullers Association coordinate bringing a few of the pros and super trucks while locals compete in street diesels.
Take a detour and go on the County Fair Scavenger Hunt. Answer the clue or riddle and it will lead you to the next exciting stop on your tour of the 4-H aspects of the Dodge County Fair. Complete the scavenger hunt list and return it to the 4-H Promotion Booth to receive a prize! When you’re in the Youth Building, don’t forget to participate in the fun activities at the 4-H Promotion Booth, go fishing for prizes at the 4-H Fish Pond, or check out the Silent Auction items.
Enjoy the many Family FREE shows throughout the grounds starting with Pig Races at 12 Noon, Kandu Magic Show at 1pm and the educational Wild World of Animals show at 1:30pm. Show times continue throughout the day, view the entire schedule on our Sunday Fair Page.
Rides and games on the midway will be open from 12 Noon to 7pm. Visit our Midway Rides Page for ticket information.
Oooh and Ahhh at the Demo Derby as cars, trucks and vans crash it out till the last one moving wins. The afternoon Demo Derby starts at 1pm on the track in front of the Grandstand. Afterwards, pit crews will be busy preparing for the main event at 6pm.
The Little Britches and Little Shepherds Showmanship Contests will make the crowd roar with laughter as kids between grades 4K and 4th demonstrate their showmanship skills. Starting with the Little Britches in the Farm Progress Area at 1:30 pm, youngsters lead their May or June dairy calf in front of the Judge. At 3pm stop by the Junior Livestock Barn to watch the Little Shepherds as they entertain and practice their skills showing sheep.
Fashion at the Fair? Yes, of course! Admire the hard work of future designers and support area youth during the 4H Clothing Style Show on the Radio Park Stage at 2pm. Area youth display their clothing and fashion projects entered in the Junior Fair.
Enjoy music by Don Peachey and his band at the WTKM Stage from 1 to 4pm. Peachey has recorded 18 Albums/CDs, including a popular novelty song called “Horsie Keep Your Tail Up.” Peachey was elected “Bandleader of the Year” by the Wisconsin Orchestra Leaders Association in 1973 and was inducted into the Wisconsin Polka Hall of Fame twice in 1998 as a recipient of both the Lifetime Achievement and the Senior awards. Don is originally from nearby Burnett, WI only six miles from the Fairgrounds.
Fans will fill the grandstands for the evening Demolition Derby at 6pm. Cars, trucks and vans will fight it out in final events based on results from the afternoon derbies. Cheer them on with your final bites of fair food and favorite drinks.
