From demolition derbys to pig racing, chainsaw artists and pickle eating contests… to enjoying a delicious cream puff and checking out the antique autos,… there’s always something fun going on at the Walworth County Fair! “Let’s go to the fair!!” is my favorite cry and, boy, am I ready!! I just love Fall, and the timing of each year’s fair is such a welcoming event for Autumn! This year’s Walworth County Fair is scheduled from Wednesday, August 31 through Monday, September 5th with adult admission of $9.00 and a daily parking fee of $5.00. I just can’t wait!!
The entertainment scene ranges from the exciting Walworth County Fair’s Country Idol Contest with semi-finals on Wednesday the 31st, and the finals on Thursday the 1st. Also, Walworth County’s own “Senior” Idol performs just before The Doobie Brothers on Sunday, the 4th! That’s right, The Doobie Brothers!! You’ll also find Montgomery Gentry on Friday the 2nd and Rodney Atkins on Saturday the 3rd. all performances begin at 7:30 and are FREE if you sit in the grandstands, otherwise there is preferred seating for which there is a charge. Not a bad deal…
Our Walworth County 4-H’rs have have worked long and hard on projects throughout the year and it’s amazing to see their showcase! From rocketry and computers to photography and chocolate chip cookies – it’s amazing to see their enthusiasm and what they have learned! Congratulations to them and to our future!! Congratulations Moms and Dads, and grandparents, too!!
And, what county fair isn’t complete without a tractor pull contest or a demolition derby?! You can catch the pull on Friday and the derby on Monday! Anyone interested??!!
What fun it is!! …but just for six days!!
While you are in the area, we hope you’ll also stop by the Lazy Cloud! Although our featured caramel apple pies haven’t maded it to the Walworth County Fair for judging, they HAVE BEEN named “Best Pie in America” by the Wall Street Journal, Gourmet, Food Network, and generations of our happy Lazy Cloud guests!! Remember that these delicious pies are complimentary with every stay! We also continue to offer a bottle of wine or champagne, raspberry meltaways, and a delicious breakfast with each stay, too!
Autumn is such a beautiful time to visit the Lake Country! There’s something special about a boat ride on a crisp fall day with the golden oaks and red maples against a forest green canvas! Or, lying under the evening sky in a double hammock and waiting for the moon to make its appearance is so romantic!
Hope you’ll have a chance to visit the Lazy Cloud soon where you’ll “Fall” in love all over again!!
