"There's No Place Like Home"


Important Update:

Food vendors and the carnival company will accept both cash and card, but to ensure a safer experience for everyone, especially our dedicated volunteers, **admission gates and beer purchases will be card-only**. This decision not only streamlines operations but also relieves our volunteers from handling cash.
Cash will be accepted for admission tickets at the fair office until August 29th at 5:00 p.m. The office will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. until Tuesday, August 29th. Your understanding helps us prioritize safety for both volunteers and patrons. Let's create wonderful memories at the Walworth County Fair!
