When can I set up my chairs for the entertainment?
In response to feedback from our fans, a new process for grandstand seating has been put in place… Signs and decals in the grandstand area are now posted; “Unattended Seats Available at Show Time”. Our fans reported reserved spaces with blankets on seats and no one would show up. Therefore, starting at the 2018 Fair all seats in the grandstand are available to anyone at the start of the concert, pull, or demo derby. Go ahead and sit on the blanket left by someone else, maybe their plans changed, we want everyone in attendance to enjoy the entertainment. If you want to use the space you reserved please be at your spot at the start of the show.
Wednesday, August 19, 2020 – (Badger State Tractor Pull) Seating available in our two large grandstands. No lawn chairs. Blankets can be placed in the grandstands at any time although we ask that you DO NOT tape or tie to the bleachers.
Thursday, August 20, 2020 – (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band concert) Chairs cannot be placed on the track until 8 am Thursday! We understand many prefer to set chairs before going to work but cannot guarantee their spot and may be moved by the grounds crew. Chairs placed at 8 am will get priority at the front. Subject to change depending on weather and manpower. Blankets can be placed in the grandstands at any time although we ask that you DO NOT tape or tie to the bleachers.
Friday, August 21, 2020 – (to be announced June 26th) Chairs can be set-up the night before and early morning as long as all litter has been picked up and put in garbage containers. Blankets can be placed in the grandstands at any time although we ask that you DO NOT tape or tie to the bleachers. After the show please take your chairs home with you to make room for Tractor Pulls on Saturday.
Saturday, August 22, 2020 – (Blue Oyster Cult and Starship featuring Mickey Thomas concert) No one can enter the track area until the tractor pull is over and the grounds crew has cleaned and prepared for the show. No chairs can remain after the tractor pull on the paved surface. Standing room only on track surface during the concert, no chairs allowed. Seating available in Grandstands, blankets can be placed in the grandstands at any time although we ask that you DO NOT tape or tie to the bleachers. See our Seating Chart for where to line-up to enter for the concert following tractor pull (first one in line gets the first choice). A small section will be reserved in the grandstand for VIP and sponsors of the Fair.
Sunday, August 23, 2020 – (Truck Pull & Demo Derby) Following the Truck Pull all unattended blankets and reserved spots will be removed by the grounds crew to maximize seating in the grandstand for the Demo Derbies. We will not allow any reserved seating on Sunday.
