Summer Fun at the Dane County Fair

3rd Wed-Sunday in July

Nothing says summer like the Dane County Fair. Its held at the Alliant Energy Center.  Many events we enjoy in Madison take place here including Bratfest and The WHA Garden Expo.

Welcome to the fair


There is so many things to do here. There is the carnival with lots of rides.

Exhibits from the 4-H club in many categories. I especially like the food-related displays.

It’s not Wisconsin without cows either.  You can stroll through the barn where they stay before being shown. And you can watch that too.

Wild West Soda

One of my favorites is Wild West Soda. They made the most refreshing chocolate soda that reminded me of an old-fashioned soda fountain. The flavor was great!

Come to the Dane County fair for a great day with the farmers representing Dane County!
