The Winnebago County Fair, in Oshkosh, WI, is very much a traditional county fair with livestock, agricultural expositions, baked food, crafts, and the like. You’ll also see truck and tractor pulls, horse pulls, bull riding, and barrel racing.
But that’s just the beginning.
Winnebago County Fair is also a huge carnival with rides, games, concessions, lights, and more! Come ride the Tilt-A-Whirl and the Ferris Wheel, win prizes at Skee Ball and enjoy delicious funnel cakes, slushies, pizza, and more. Come nighttime, there’s nothing quite so magical as popcorn or cotton candy under the twinkling, multicolored lights of the midway.
The fair also includes a number of special and on-going events. The schedule includes a woodcarving auction, demolition derby, mobile robots, trout fishing, a mechanical bull, and a special breakfast at the fair, to name just a few.
There’s also plenty of live entertainment planned. Winnebago County Fair’s Concert Village will host Ryan Nelson, Troy Olsen, Tracy Lawrence, The Devonshires, Kentucky Headhunters, Artimus Pyle Band, and the Wisconsin Singers! You’ll also be entertained by the talents of Railroad Ron & Bob, Sizzlin’ Sonny’s Rockin’ Road Show, and The Tuba Dan Band.
