Rides at the fair

Midway rides at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair in Chippewa Falls were still being assembled in July 2017.

Get ready, fair fanatics — the Northern Wisconsin State Fair is back.

The annual event will begin Wednesday, July 11, and will host rides, animals and featured exhibits, musical acts, fried foods and family entertainment through Sunday, July 15, at the fairgrounds in Chippewa Falls.

As trucks full of equipment have been flowing into the city in preparation for the event, Executive Director Rusty Volk is eager to see the event get started.

“Every year I’m excited to have everything come together the way it does,” Volk said, adding that there are plenty of free opportunities for families to enjoy.

Lambeau Field Live will be a hot exhibit, Volk said, as the touring celebration will make an appearance throughout the fair as part of a 16-month commemoration of the Green Bay Packers’ 100th anniversary on Aug. 11, 2019.

The exhibit will feature alumni meet and greets, a traveling Pro Shop and Hall of Fame, virtual displays and live experiences, the team announced in a press release in April.

The stop in Chippewa Falls is one of five Lambeau Field Live is making on its tour across Wisconsin’s festivals, fairs and celebrations.

On the grandstand stage, attendees will also be entertained by four different major recording artists, headlining Wednesday through Saturday.

Frankie Ballard kicks off the musical line-up on Wednesday evening, and he’s followed by Chris Lane on Thursday. Martina McBride will headline the stage Friday night, while Cheap Trick rounds out the headliner musical line-up on Saturday evening.

All of the performances will begin at 8 p.m., and tickets are available online.

A tractor parade, horse shows, races, musical numbers and animal judging are among the wide variety of events fair goers can anticipate.

In preparing to come to the fair, Volk recommended newbies prepare for crowds and parking procedures. He encouraged people to come early, and commended the fair staff for the work in ensuring all goes well.

Also that weekend in Chippewa County, Rock Fest will be having a head-banging good time in Cadott. Volk said he was not concerned with two large festivals in the same county on the same weekend, and added that when the events have lined up on the past, everything has worked out.
