Down Attendance at Waukesha County Fair Blamed on Heat and Storms

The 174th Waukesha County Fair, received a total of 84,515 visitors to the annual five-day event which ran Wednesday, July 20 through Sunday, July 24 on the Waukesha County Expo Grounds.

Despite a strong start with the third highest Wednesday attendance in opening day history, overall Fair attendance was down due to unfavorable weather conditions. This was the first time the Fair experienced a heat advisory or warning all five days. Torrential downpours and electrical storms throughout the day on Thursday and Saturday and early rain on Sunday morning kept crowds light. Truck and Tractor Pulls for Sunday were canceled due to the track conditions from the rain.

“We appreciate every person who came out and braved the heat, humidity, and rain to support us,” said Chrissy Gluege, Executive Director. “We want to thank our sponsors, board members, staff, and countless volunteers for all of their hard work. We have no control over the weather, but we are already looking forward to planning 2017—our 175th event.”
