Hold on tight, it’s going to be a busy day on the midway plus so much more to see and do! Have you visited the booths in the commercial tents? Have you seen the pig races or the magic show? What are you waiting for… there’s only two days left!
Start your morning with Breakfast and the Horse Pull at 9am. Draft teams use “Horse Power” to pull the sled the farthest down the track. The Grandstand Concessions and Edith’s Cakes and Catering will be serving breakfast throughout the morning.
Take a ride or test your skill in the Midway starting at 12 Noon. It’s Family Day on the Midway with discounts on 20 tickets for $10 or $1 each from 12 Noon to 5pm. Regular ticket prices resume at 5pm, 14 tickets for $10 or $1 each. Visit our Midway Rides Page for more information.
At 1pm Farm Tractors will pull the sled down the track to see who will go the farthest. This well attended event is known for a wide variety of tractors and quick moving show with the two sled operation by Luedtke’s Eliminator.
It’s a busy afternoon in the Farm Progress Arena with shows and auctions. Dodge County Holstein Futurity Show at 1pm and the Small Animal Auction at 4pm. Support area youth with a bid or an applause as they display their year’s accomplishments.
Win money and prizes at Game Show Day in the WBEV/WXRO Radio Park. Play the newlywed game at 1pm for a chance to win VIP seats to Thompson Square (anyone can play, you don’t have to be married to play, play with the person who knows you the best)! Starting at 4pm play Take It All, a fun white elephant game where you could win a bunch of great prizes. Game Show Day is sponsored by Rock River Home Improvement.
At 7pm in the Farm Progress Arena watch top junior and senior showmen of beef, sheep and swine projects compete against each other in showing their own animal, and then going on to show animals in the other two species.
Thompson Square will highlight the day as the Grandstand Stage performer at 8pm presented by WXRO 95.3 FM. All seats are FREE with paid admission to the Fair and are available on a first come, first serve basis. You can sit on the track in your lawn chair or on the bleachers in the grandstands. Get more information from the Concert Seating and FAQ Pages of our website.
After the concert, enjoy music in Radio Park and the Legion Tent. Move and groove to Chelli Bri on the WBEV/WXRO Radio Park Stage “A modern country band with a side of rock and roll” sponsored by Bortz’s Wild Goose Auto Sales and Bud Light. Request your favorite tunes in the Legion tent by Jeff Hall DJ Service from 9 to 11:30pm sponsored by Johnny’s Lounge & Schaefer’s Soft Water.
