The changes made to the Door County Fair over the last year have seemed to pay huge dividends. Following the county’s decision to pay for the event’s expenses in full during last fall’s 2017 budget talks after years of failing to turn a profit, fair officials retooled the event by lowering the ticket costs, adding new entertainment, and making most of the activities such as rides and grandstand shows inclusive with admission. Door County Fair Board Member Tim Ash says although official counts are not in, he expects a huge improvement.
It was also a successful weekend for area youth as many will now take their projects to the Wisconsin State Fair currently being held in West Allis.
