None of Wisconsin’s state fairs are happening this year.
Organizers of the Central Wisconsin State Fair in Marshfield yesterday pulled the plug on this year’s event. Fair manager Dale Christiansen said he is heartbroken to have to cancel. He says small businesses, family farmers, and the community count on the fair each year.
Christiansen said the coronavirus is making it impossible to host the fair safely this summer. The State Fair in West Allis and the Northern Wisconsin State Fair in Chippewa Falls have also been canceled.
