There’s a heck of a lot more going on at the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds than just farm animals, food on a stick, pie-eating contests, and screaming kids and carnies. (But really, isn’t that enough?) Discover the surprising range of other cool stuff happening all up in here.

GENERAL LOCATION:

Follow Hwy 45 to the sprawling southeast quadrant of our town, then pick a road to explore the parks, cozy neighborhoods, small businesses, and big time attractions.  

WHAT YOU’LL FIND:

Blue Line Family Ice Center (with massive three sheets of ice under one roof) • 32,000 square feet of modern Expo Center convention space •  Fairgrounds Aquatic Center/WaterparkKorneli’s on the Avenue Roller Rink • The Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

See a slammin’ good Bears Hockey game • Let your kids splash themselves silly at the outdoor waterpark • Witness blade magic at the Foot of the Lake Synchronized Skating competition • Roller skate, or watch people who do • Let your kids play arcade games for hours (while you wait at a big, beautiful bar) • Nosh on a “Womelette” • Attend the best County Fair in the midwest (scholars haven’t officially settled the matter yet, but with a one-of-a-kind livestock birthing center, rodeo, and all that good, live music, it seems a done deal.)
