"A Fair to Remember"
The 2014 Florence County Fair -- August 22-23-24
5505 County Highway N; Florence, WI
Building Project
Thanks to the generous donation of local contractors and to the community support at Fair Fundraisers, the Florence County Fair constructed a brand new building.  This project will included the a new beer stand/kitchen and permanent second stage at the Fair Park.

This building was constructed with the fair only paying for materials.  The money for these materials came through various fair fundraisers, and donations/sponsors.  In the end, we had to take a loan to pay for the materials.  We borrowed approximately $12,000 for materials.  Our fundraisers this year have gone to help pay off this loan.  These fundraisers included two Smear Tournaments (held in January and March), a raffle with over 30 prizes, and two fair breakfasts (Sunday, May 25 and Sunday, July 6).

If you are interested in making a donation towards this new structure, it can be sent to 
Florence County Fair at P.O. Box 704; Florence, WI 54121. 

2013 Major Changes again at Fair Park
Have you driven past the Florence County Fair Park over the last few months? Major changes and improvements have been happening, including (but not limited to):
- The construction of a new building
- Reconstruction of the arena seating
- Improvements to the current pavilion
- Landscape (excavating and grass) throughout much of the fair park

These changes are happening due to donations and volunteers throughout the area. The Fair Park is improving because of these wonderful people.
