Jodi Langenhahn, the Wisconsin Valley Fair Administrator said the community likes to think of this fair more as an agricultural fair.

“That’s sort of where our roots come from. And we really like to keep that at the center of what we do. So that is a very important part, the agricultural aspect of it,’ she explained. “I love all the animals. It just brings that excitement to the fair. When I was growing up I showed, and I grew up on a farm so I have, of course, a special place in my heart for all things animals.”
