Walworth County Fair

It’s the oldest county fair in Wisconsin – this will be its 168th year! The Walworth County Fair features livestock judging, exhibits, carnival rides, bull riding, concessions, harness racing, tractor and truck pulls, demolition derby, and free grandstand shows. Every Labor Day weekend, the fair draws thousands of visitors to Elkhorn for this 6-day extravaganza, making it the single biggest event in Elkhorn and Walworth County.

“Are You Ready For Big?” is the theme this year. Grandstand Events this year include:

  • All Star Monster Trucks Friday night,
  • Martina McBride Saturday night
  • Foghat & Blue Oyster Cult Sunday night
  • Antique & Stock Tractor Pull
  • Badger State Tractor & Truck Pulls
  • NEW this year: Arm Wrestling Tourament, Saturday

There’s also the Strut Your Stuff Recipe Challenge, Rooster Crowing Contests, Chainsaw Artists, Barnyard Races, Fairest of the Fair, Bull Riding, a series of Horse Events, the Farmers Market & Old World Artisan Village, a Sunday morning Classic Car & Tractor Parade, and Kiddieland featuring barnyard adventures and kids’ entertainment. Plenty to do, see, eat, and enjoy at this historic venue!

I-43, U.S.  12, and Highways 11 and 67 all bring you to Elkhorn for the fun. Their website has all the updates and details, including a very full schedule!
