Waukesha County Fair
- Arts, Entertainment & Recreation
The Waukesha County Fair is rooted in history, heritage, family, fun, entertainment, education, and agriculture. As the oldest county fair in the State and largest event held each year in Waukesha County, we are excited to reach over 120,000 fairgoers over the course of five short days in July. Uniquely, the Waukesha County Fair is one of the only county fairs in the State that does not receive any funding from the City or County of Waukesha. We are a robust 501(c)3 non-profit organization run by a 15 member volunteer Board of Directors that answers to an Association of approximately 100 members annually. What would summer be like without fair and festival season? The Waukesha County Fair has been an iconic, summer tradition with roots dating back to 1842; celebrating 179 years strong in 2021!
We are filled with exciting opportunities different from most. It takes a village to put the Fair together. With the help of over 200+ volunteers, incredible corporate partnerships, and annual seasonal staff, we continue to pride ourselves on the strong impact, opportunities, educational aspects, and entertainment that the Fair has for all ages in Waukesha County and surrounding communities.
