Wisconsin Cancels State Fair Due to COVID-19
WEST ALLIS, WIS. — The annual Wisconsin State Fair, scheduled to take place Aug. 6-16 in West Allis, has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The fair is the largest event in the state, drawing more than 1 million people each year. The financial implications associated with hosting a fair with significantly reduced attendance and implementing safety measures could be detrimental to the future of State Fair Park, according to the board of directors. Previously purchased admission tickets can be used for the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair, which is scheduled to take place Aug. 5-15. Refunds are available through June 30.
