Fair at numerous community events, local parades, surrounding county fairs or
other agricultural shows and 4-H events both before and after the week-long
Fair in July. As the host of the Fond du Lac County Fair, the Fairest will be
available during the Fair week and will assist with introducing shows and
events, handing out ribbons to exhibitors and interacting with fairgoers to
ensure they have a wonderful experience at the fair that we all know and love!
