The Dane County Fair is an annual, family-friendly event held in Madison every July. Friends from near and far venture to the Alliant Energy Center from July 18 to July 21 for free concerts, entertainment, great food, animals and adventure.

The gates open at 8 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. There is no entry after 8 p.m., but events inside the Fair go to 11 p.m. Admission to the Fair is free for ages five and under, $10 for ages 6 to 11, and $15 for ages 12-plus.

Activities at the Dane County Fair include a carnival, youth projects, farm animals, an array of food and free daily entertainment.

The Fair has a rich history dating back to 1851 when the first Dane County Fair was held in Madison. This history guides us as we strive to honor the past while continuing a tradition and looking to the future.
