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.

Jayme Buttke, Executive Secretary


We are excited to have the Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs visit your event. We have two different request forms; one for an appearance at your fair and one for a non fair appearance.

The "Fair Appearance" form will allow fairs to put two appearance options for fair time on the same request form.

The "Non Fair Appearance" form should serve as a separate request for events such as dairy breakfasts or fairest crownings that fairs offer as well as requests from businesses that are not a fair but would like the Fairest of the Fairs to attend.

We ask that all event appearance requests be submitted by May 15 for June-September events. If you are requesting an event appearance other than the June-September time frame, please complete the appearance request form at least one month in advance. The WI Fairest of the Fairs will connect with you at least 30 days prior to your event. Not all appearance requests can be made, but we will do our best.

If your fair happens during the WI State Fair, please consider inviting the Fairest of the Fairs to an event before or after your fair.
