Welcome to August! We’re heading into a busy weekend and there’s so much going on around Wisconsin… it’s a great time to road trip around the state and just Pick Some Roads and GO!!
Tall Ships hit Kenosha

State Fair kicks off today!
We’ve arrived at the Opening Day of the 2019 Wisconsin State Fair! With all the animals and traditional fun of pig races, the bumpy slide, and cream puffs, the vendors at State Fair are offering over 65 new food options to try – and not all of them are deep fried! Bug tacos are one example; an Apple Crunch Cheesecake Quesadilla is another. And yes, that’s just the start. Main Stage headliners range from REO Speedwagon and Rick Springfield to Jeff Dunham, Kidz Bop, Old Dominion, Melissa Etheridge, and more. You can find out more about this year’s State Fair in the latest State Trunk Tour Podcast here:
