Wisconsin State Fair

Is there anything quite like the Wisconsin State Fair to cool down the dog days of August? For more than 160 years, Milwaukeeans have flocked to the fair to see the best of Wisconsin food, farm animals and entertainment.

As always, the Exposition Center will feature Wisconsin-centered exhibits as well as hundreds of vendors with almost every product imaginable – and air conditioning, of course.

And don't forget the cream puffs. No State Fair experience is complete without them, but you'll definitely want to save room for the deep-fried items, the food on a stick and, of course, the beer.

Where: Wisconsin State Fair Park, 640 S. 84th St., West Allis

When: July 31 -Aug. 10. Sunday-Thursday: 8 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday-Saturday: 8 a.m.-midnight; Sunday, Aug. 12: 8 a.m.-10 p.m.

Ticket info: Adults (12-59): $10; seniors (60+): $7; military and veterans with I.D.: $7; youth: (6-11): $6; children (5 and under): Free.
