Three Local Businesses Support Free Entertainment for the Entire Family

What do local, popular gas stations, an education facility and a food packing facility all have in common? Three local companies have invested in local families by supporting free family entertainment stages throughout the Dodge County Fairgrounds this season. Families will enjoy free entertainment August 14-18, thanks to the support of Richelieu Foods, Kwik Trip and Moraine Park Technical College.

Nick’s Kids Show will be providing three family-friendly shows each day of the 2019 fair season, thanks to Kwik Trip. Kwik Trip is very involved in each of the communities that it serves and currently has more than 500 locations, with three right in Beaver Dam. Their established rewards program, clean facilities, delicious bakery items and convenient, hot food bars are popular with their loyal customers and families. The daily Nick’s Kids Show performances are geared towards children ages three to twelve years, but offer entertainment and humor for the entire family. Families can participate from the crowd or take advantage of the interaction on stage. Families can find the Kwik-trip sponsored stage near the midway. 

The family-friendly Wild World of Animals show will be sponsored by Beaver Dam’s Richelieu Foods during the 2019 Fair season. Richelieu Foods, Inc. is a private label and a contract packing food company in the food and supermarket industry. Headquartered in Massachusetts, their local manufacturing facility operates out of Beaver Dam. During this free show, families can meet more than a dozen different animals from across the globe. This informative show provides families with age-appropriate education, dialogue and humor during the display and demonstration of each animal. Inquisitive children can get their questions answered, too. Several shows are scheduled throughout the 2019 fair season.

Moraine Park Technical College will be sponsoring the always-popular Pig, Duck, and Goat Races from Pleasure Valley Farm. Moraine Park campuses are conveniently located locally in Beaver Dam, Fond du Lac and West Bend, with other centers in Jackson and Ripon. The technical college also offers online and blended education opportunities. Moraine Park Technical College offers more than 100 education options. Racing pigs, ducks and goats have been entertaining fair crowds for the past five years. These popular farm animals call Pleasure Valley Farm in Adell their home, where families can also find them during the fall pumpkin season. They will be on hand for viewing at the fair several times throughout the season, while families giggle and cheer as the farm animals race around the short course. Families can find the races on South Fairview Road.

Families can also browse the fairgrounds and enjoy popular fair treats and snacks and midway rides. The midway will offer several ticket and wrist band specials. Families can enjoy half-off prices during “family day”. On Saturday afternoon from 12:00 Noon until 5:00 pm, families will receive twenty tickets will be only $10 or $1.25 each.

Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available for the 2019 fair season and beyond. The 2019 fair season will open on August 14 and conclude on August 18. Options are endless and budgets vary for both small and large businesses. Unique opportunities for local sponsors include everything from event and stage sponsorship, building names, tents to trash can wraps, scoreboards and seating.
