It really was the most "WonderFair" time of the year

August 17, 2017

I can’t get over how much fun I had at the Wisconsin State Fair and the fantastic people I had the opportunity to meet. All 11 days I was reminded how Wisconsin farmers, agriculturists, volunteers, and even fair-goers care about their fair and its importance for our state and Wisconsin agriculture.


At the Wisconsin State Fair I had the privilege of partaking in many unique activities. From welcoming crowds, presenting the Mapping a Healthy Wisconsin presentation, riding in a Clydesdale six-hitch, to even mimicking a pig at the Governor’s 4-H Foundation Auction, I had a blast.


I even had the chance to go on the WonderFair Wheel with Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Governor Scott Walker.


If I had to pick my favorite part of the Wisconsin State Fair – Hands down it was meeting hundreds of people and livestock behind the scenes. Interviewing different animals and their owners, describing their personalities, and sharing facts about the respective species, I made a lot of new friends.

Another way that I met people was through the Wisconsin Product Pavilion. While exhibiting dairy at the fair, I always wanted “wholesome” food…especially after the first day when I ate as many deep fried foods as possible.


#HumansofWIAG and #HumansofWIStateFair allowed unique interviews to take place and to get a behind the scenes look at the Wisconsin food that has fair-goers flocking every year. Of course I sampled my favorites, but also expanded my horizons.


After three days of sleep, lots of vegetables, and eating anything except deep-fried food, I’m ready to hit the road again. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the most Wonder-fair time of the year.
