WISCONSIN FAIREST OF THE FAIRS TO SERVE AN ADDITIONAL YEAR
Cayley Vande Berg of Rosendale, Wisconsin, selected in January 2020 to serve as the 2020 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs, will continue her reign until January 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While Cayley would normally be traveling all summer throughout the state promoting the educational, agricultural, social, cultural and commercial opportunities available at Wisconsin’s great fairs, her focus will shift to making limited appearances during the remainder of 2020 in hopes of returning to traveling in 2021.
The Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs program was created 54 years ago to select an ambassador for the Wisconsin Association of Fairs, representing 75 county, district and state fairs in Wisconsin. Being selected Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs is a great honor and a once in a lifetime opportunity. By extending her reign, Vande Berg will be able to fully experience all of the great events usually scheduled while highlighting the importance of agriculture and the Fair industry throughout Wisconsin.
Modifications will also be made to the annual Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention to be held January 10-13, 2021. There will be no Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs Contest offered at the 2021 convention. The Wisconsin Association of Fairs Fairest Committee is working with local programs to roll their contestants into the 2022 contest.
Vande Berg looks forward to continuing her reign through 2021, being able to visit many of Wisconsin’s Fairs next summer, including the Wisconsin State Fair, presented by U.S. Cellular, Thursday, Aug. 5 – Sunday, Aug. 15, 2021. State Fair offers a unique experience to all who attend and is an exceptional value with 30 FREE entertainment stages, exciting rides and games in SpinCity, thousands of animals, endless family activities, events, contests, vendors and culinary delights.
