Your Guide to the Waukesha County Fair

The fair runs Wednesday through Sunday.

Food galore. Dairy Cows. Rides that will make you throw up. Live music. Tractor and truck pulls. Demolition derbies. Vendors from throughout the state.

Yes, the starts this week at the Fair schedules are attached to this article.

Make sure you find Patch at the fair. Spin the prize wheel for a flying disc, sunglasses, tote bag or other Patch prizes. Kids can play our putting game and get a free temporary tattoo or some bubbles.

If you are out and about the fair this year, be sure to add pictures to our neighborhood galleries.
