The 2021 Dodge County Fair will entertain you with a full line-up of live music, youth activities, 4-H showcases and delicious fair food. The five-day festival includes free evening concerts, a truck and tractor pull and a demolition derby across its extensive schedule on August 18-22. Beaver Dam is centrally located on WI-33 in Beaver Dam, between Madison, Milwaukee and the Fox Cities.

With a variety of rides available for all ages – and thrill levels — everyone can enjoy the midway! Take a ride on your old favorites, or try something new.

The entire family can hop on the Epic Wheel or the Carousel together, or compete against each other in a game of Bumper Cars.

Bring back those childhood memories from your earlier days at the Dodge County Fair. Ride enthusiasts can test their sense of adventure on the popular Sky Master, the Flying Dutchman and the timeless thrill of the Gravitron and the Zipper.

The youngest riders will also enjoy a low-key ride on the train and the teacups. Most rides are not recommended for children under two years of age and most rides require riders to be a minimum height limit of 42 inches to ride alone. Please plan accordingly when purchasing your tickets.

When the fair kicks-off on Wednesday, the midway specials kick-off too. Daily specials will take place for individuals and families on Wednesday through Saturday, with limited hours. Regular ticket prices ($1.25/ticket or 20 tickets for $20) will resume during other times when the Fair is open and all day on Sunday.
