Waukesha County Fair Announces 2019 Attendance
Attendance at the 2019 Waukesha County Fair was 4.3% higher than the 2018 Fair.

Waukesha, WI – A total of 118,252 visitors attended the 2019 Waukesha County Fair, presented by Inpro Corporation. The Fair ran from Wednesday, July 17 through Sunday, July 21 on the Waukesha Expo Grounds. Heat advisories played a factor in attendance, but the Fair lifted carry-in water bans and encouraged Fairgoers to safely enjoy Summer Nights and Sparkling Lights at the 177th WCF—Wisconsin’s oldest fair.

“While we were concerned about the heat, it was great to see Fairgoers taking advantage of the carry-in water allowance, the Culligan Water hydration station, Aquafina and Gatorade thanks to Pepsi, and the misting tent to stay hydrated and cool,” says Executive Director Chrissy Gluege.
